At least, that's how it felt during the holidays in Japan. Christmas is a fun date night and a cute day to give your kids a gift from Santa. No religion necessary! New Year's Eve and the three days after are the most important days for family celebration in Japan. I have grown into appreciating New Year's as an important holiday but I still get upset that Japan can adopt the commercial side of Christmas just for fun when very few people are actual Christians and could care less about the birth of Jesus.
During the next month or so, I'll finally be running Fried Chicken and Sushi comic strips based on Christmas and New Year's! I've avoided it for four years and now is the time for the holidays to arrive in the world of Karl, J, Tanuki and Mai! Enjoy and I would love to read your comments about experiencing the holidays in Japan in the comments section under the comic. If you want to give me a nice gift, you can become a patron HERE ON MY PATREON PAGE! Happy holidays and thanks for being a fan!
