Christmas Stuff......

Holiday Season
Halloween is quite popular in Japan lately....then after that.... we skip Thanks Giving... ( we don't have it ) meaning Turkey and Cranberry Sauce is rarely served at restaurants here.  If you'd like, you need to find American style restaurants.  ( Sometimes , I seriously search for that ! )

Now shops are filled with Christmas Stuff..... Have you been to Kaldi ?  They sell imported foods.... this snowball tea cookies are one of the dangerous sweets that I get easily addicted to... this milky taste..... hmmmmm !

I guess, it's not just the taste, this cute package and holiday season's festive mood excites me.

laurie, thank you. Canadian people eat that many cookies !? Didn't know that, interesting.

I usually don't eat much sweets, just occasionally, but during this holiday season, somehow, i feel like eating sweets.
