Hi, How are you?
It is close to Christmas 2018.
Today’s blog is about “Christmas”
“Christmas" is a big event for everyone.
Of course, December 25th is Jesus birthday.
This day has very important meaning for Christians.
Christmas is also a very exciting day for most people.
Children around the world are waiting for Santa to come to their house
I (Naoki) remembered memories of Christmas.
I will share it. This is Xmas in Japan.
When I was a child, I was so excited to see ads with product pictures from toy shop.
”What kind of new toy will I get on this Christmas?”I also checked cake shop’s ads.
“I like the strawberry short cake (round cake). Chocolate coating cake is so delicious too.”
I think most children think this way.

There was no computer games at that time.
I was interested in a hero figures.
I was also interested in board games like “Life” and card game “trump”.
Baseball glove, bat and soccer ball
I had liked soccer (foot ball) more than baseball since I was a child.

Family computer - Mario brothers, Donkey Kong, Road Runner,
Championship Road Runner,Legend of Zelda, exciting bike, F1, Xevious,
Gradius, Dragon Quest 1, 2, 3, Final Fantasy
Super Family computer - Super Mario brothers, F-zero, Street Fighter 2,
Final Fantasy series, Soccer (human)
And so on.
Games are so expensive so I couldn't buy them easily. It is hard for parents to buy games for children. I only had chance to get a game at Christmas or New Year by gift money. I have saved money for buying them by gift money from parents or relatives. It’s like this in most households but will be different for rich people. I still feel I was so lucky because I could enjoy them.
I think boys will be interested in “Nintendo Switch” now.
Children will like “ Mario cart “. it will be plush doll for girls.
I feel children share similar interests even though our generation is different.
“How do you spend your Christmas?”
“With Family or With Couple?”
Happy Holidays to Everyone!
