Get into the Christmas spirit:
how Christmas like in Japan?

Christmas isn’t a national holiday in Japan, but has been felt and celebrated throughout the country for the last few decades. 

Even though just about 1 percent of whole population is Christian, it’s such a heartfelt feast that, during the festive season Christmas, melodies, glittering lights and plethora of Christmas markets spread all over the country.

But in the land of the rising sun, Christmas is may be a little different from what we are used to in western countries.
Japanese nativity is known as a time to spread happiness, rather than a religious celebration and due to the influence of american tradition and marketers’ unique spin, now manifests itself in ways that might surprise you.

In Japan, Christmas is the time for friends and couples to have parties, make plans to meet up for dinner and celebrate as much as they can.
Here’s a fun fact: for most japanese Christmas Eve is even more important that Christmas day!
Christmas Eve is the Japanese version of Valentine’s Day and is felt as the most romantic day of the year.
Exchanging gifts between couples in love has become a tradition.

If you don’t have a date on Christmas Eve, it is better to spend time with your family visit the temple, and celebrating the arrival of January 1st with food and drinks, to be seen alone in public.
