Christmas Part Two

We carried our celebration of Christmas through much of December, finally capping it off Friday at school (Bible Camp).

We had Asahina-sensei over for dinner on December 23rd, a national holiday (current Emperor’s birthday). She brought fried tofu filled with leeks, radish pickles, satoimo, and miso glazed daikon.

For dessert, we had a store bought Christmas cake. We chose a fruit tart.

We had to work Christmas Eve (and Day), so after work, I made us a nice dinner and we opened gifts.
