Christmas Party

On December 8th, a few of us special ones headed down to Ikata (read: no man’s land) to visit our friend Jesse’s house, and engage in some traditional Christmas rituals; mulled wine, Secret Santa, Christmas music, etc.

The party started out classy but we quickly descended into our usual shenanigans, ending the night by throwing flour into the air and screaming “it’s snowing” – see how we react with no snow in Japan? Oh well, better at his house than mine.

Since most of my friends are returning to their homelands for Christmas (Katie & I were the only ones to do so last year), it was nice to be able to celebrate the season with them, especially this may be the last December I spend with a few of them.

All in all, good times were had.
