In the 4 years Ksk and I have been together we haven’t really celebrated Christmas properly – spend the entire day eating and enjoying quality family time. Usually I decorate the tree and watch Christmas films on my own because Ksk has work. And since the actual day is not a holiday in Japan, we’re both usually at work then too but we do try to have Christmas dinner at the Meguro Tavern.
For me, Christmas is my favourite time of year, and I love the build up to the day. But Ksk doesn’t really get it, despite spending Christmases in the UK, the magic and excitement hadn’t really transferred to him, so I’m trying to share it via Christmas movies.
This year we’ll get to spend Christmas properly ( I hope), neither of us have work and we now have the space and time to make a Christmas lunch.
And to begin Ksk’s Christmas education, we watched National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation while we decorated the tree. I’ve seen it before but couldn’t really remember it and of course, Ksk hadn’t seen it. Luckily, he enjoyed it and he did a really great job at decorating the tree.
What’s your favourite Christmas movie?
