I am a total sap for Christmas stuff. I love decorating and making my living space as warm, and Christmas spirited as possible while I am away from family in Japan. Of course, now I have my own family in Japan, but this is more a yearning for things back in the US.
Over the past couple of years I have purchased various Christmas knickknacks to decorate my living room. This year I added an LED wreath for the front door and some window decals. My wife as always is indifferent about my decorating but she likes it after I am done.
This year I won’t have any presents under the tree, but at least I have a huge present that is my recently born son. Hopefully I can take him and my wife back to the US to see my family for Christmas in 2012 or sooner! Sometimes its hard to live life straddling two countries so far apart.
