Then again, I could sit and drink in the beautiful purples of this sunset all night long. You don’t get them quite like that back in the cow pastures!
Below you can see how I spent my less-than-exciting Christmas Eve – handwriting about two dozen 年賀状 (nengajyo) – traditional Japanese New Years greeting cards and about a dozen more Christmas cards. While the nengajyo still have a chance of arriving on time, I have since resigned myself to the fact that my Christmas cards will be very, very late. But hey, it’s the thought that counts, right?
Anyway, as determined by the popular vote in my last entry (and by “popular vote” I mean “three people” (^_^)v ) I did in fact end up dragging myself out of bed at an entirely unreasonable hour yesterday and shlepped out to the Imperial Palace to wish the Emperor a happy birthday. I’ll post the pictures of that in the next couple of days.
But for now, Merry Christmas to all! I hope you all scored some great loot!
