This is about the extent that we celebrated Halloween and Christmas. Actually, Halloween was a much bigger to-do this year as we took a trip out to Heather’s house in Matsumoto for a party with her children, and some trick-or-treating that she had arranged with her neighbors who have absolutely no clue why they are giving the kids the candy that Heather had just given them.
Our Christmas tree this year. Pure to tradition, Mona and I hiked into the forest and she chose this one herself. (Hopefully it is obvious that she decorated it herself as well)
