In Japan, not celebrating Christmas is the norm, but if you decide to do something Western and celebrate Christmas, the common thing would be to go on a date and to eat at a Western style restaurant (e.g. pasta).
|Entree, very good (raw) fish|
Since no one wants to date me, I had dinner with a friend instead. She also has no one to date, she claims (which is somewhat surprising, since she is quite cute and very funny). We also somewhat un-Christmasy went to a Japanese restaurant.
|Salad, with raw fish and avocado|
|Pumpkin gratin (with potatoes)|
|Slightly cooked tuna|
|Deep fried fish of some kind|
The food was very nice. My friend also gave me a Christmas present that she bought in a shop across the street from the restaurant. 2013 will be the year of the snake, so I received a snake. It will hopefully bring me luck next year, so my ear will get better etc.
