The Blog Link Up Party's topic for this week and next week is Winter Holidays. I am not sure if I will post next week as I will be celebrating the season with my special someone, but will post a few cards today.
Japan is fairly new to the Christmas thing. It is not a Christian country and as such, celebrates Christmas mostly as a secular event with Santa Claus. For many people, the ideal Christmas Dinner is KFC and indeed, the KFC outlets are very busy in December with people booking their buckets of chicken for their family's meal. Christmas decorations often come down on Christmas day. I tended to work Christmas Day during my first few years here and one of the saddest things I saw happened during my lunch. I was in a little restaurant near my work and the staff were taking down the Christmas tree as I watched, on Christmas Day.
Not surprisingly, there are Gotochi cards for Christmas time. I have one! Below is the card for 2014. After spending some time scanning the Posta Collect website, it looks like the same design was also used for 2015 and I haven't seen the design for this year. It wasn't on the website.

How about in your country, if you have snow?
|Hi! I'm Back!!|
I love the food he has...the long negi in his hand, and the garlic and probably
onions in the bag!
Happy New Year
