I had several dinner gatherings...... several nice places and dinners I enjoyed, which I will write about later.
One of the places was interesting... owned by first lady.... prime minister's wife, Mrs. Abe. So, look forward to it!
Last night, I went to my alma mater to join their Christmas. Looking back of my schooldays ( middle school and high school total 6 years ), the school always gave us a piece of Christmas cake. The cake is usually shortcake. It is packed in a mini box and we bring it home and eat. Sort of small gift from school.
Then the other day, when I was having dinner with my American friends, I heard that there is no Christmas cake in the U.S. or there is no custom eating that.
Oh, I see. Eating shortcake or fresh cream decorated cake with some strawberries on the top is very Japanese. :-)
I would love to hear about your dessert situation at Christmas dinner table and the culture in your country.
In the meantime...... Merry Christmas! Wishing you a merry, heartwarming Christmas or Happy Holidays!
