My parents made a fuss about Christmas only when their children were small, because old folks in Japan generally think that Christmas is for kids. Thus, this year, living with my aging parents, I had to have a terribly un-festive Christmas. There was no Christmas tree, wreath, gingerbread people, fruitcake or dinner with sparkling wine. The only thing the family got was a typical Japanese Christmas cake which dad had to buy to help the relative who works at a local pastry shop.
But you never thought that this blog would just ignore Christmas this year? OF COURSE NOT!
How could I end a year without exchanging warm wishes with all the good people who support me?
So here it is... The Santa above (made with a strawberry and cream taken from the "anpanman Christmas cake" dad bought) and I are wishing you a warm, joyful Christmas and a wonderful new year.
Mom said OMG when she saw this strawberry Santa. She showed it to dad and he laughed, too. That was something new to me... actually seeing someone react to what I made for Christmas.
And I think I liked that. :)
