     Christmas is coming even in Japan.

     A angel is praying.

    Japan accepted Christmas as a present or a gift custom. So few people would go to church in a Christmas season.



     Children until 7 or 8 years old would believe that Santa Claus come to at the midnight of Christmas Eve. So Parents would buy a Christmas present for each child and after they would sleep, one of parents woud leave a presnt for each child's bedside.

     Christmas tree illuminations.

      After they would notice who presented somethings to them,They would come to hold a Christmas party. If there ia a child of Buddhist priest,the child would hold a Christmas party at a guest room of a temple.

                   A Christmas tree.

     We could hear Christmas songs from a temple. It is not so queer in Japan.

     Have a happy Christmas season!

    Dear ann. Thank you. She will say Yes. Japanese department stores and toy shops would use special Christmas wrapping,so a little child would think that Santa Claus came in.
