Christmas decorations

 I have taken more pictures than I have been able to post so I am quite a bit behind. This is a picture of the Christmas tree in Fukuokaminami Station, where we get buses, the Shinkansen, and I go to play Igo.
This is the Christmas tree at Mirikaroden where I take my art classes.

Christmas is interesting here. It is completely secular but stores and public places play Christmas carols starting from early November and there are Christmas trees and decorations everywhere. Some private homes even decorate with lights. Also it is a date night for young people and the restaurants do a booming business. As I said before, my wife and I had a fantastic Christmas lunch at our favorite Chinese/French restaurant.
