So, it finally happened. It was insidious. It snuck up from behind me and smacked me in the head today. Christmas arrived. I started hearing the carols on the radio(yes, even in Japan they play them), I've been seeing the Christmas trees and lights popping up in all the usual places AAAAAND I saw the crazy dancing Santa down in DenDen town.
So, that settles it. The holiday season is here. I find myself humming Christmas carols and thinking about butter tarts. For those of you who do not know, my grama makes the best butter tarts I've ever had and she makes them only at Christmas. I eagerly await a package from Canada containing bits and bobs of my gramas baking and little tinned things that seem to only be around at this time of year. Mmmmmmmmmmm, the holidays. I'm already thinking about what I'm going to cook on Christmas Day and how many people will be coming over. I had 30 last year. There was barely enough room for everyone to sit down - actually it was kind of funny. ;) Anyway, I can't stop thinking about it - I'm pondering whether I should buy a few decorations (or a hundred). Someone stop me now before I'm out of control :D
