They go for Christmas big time here, especially considering they're largely a non-Christian country. Still, why let that get in the way of a bit of cold chicken and cheap fairly lights?

Christmas lights purchased from the 100 yen (50p) shop. It was only when I got them home that I noticed why they're so cheap - you get one green light and the rest are black and white.

Streets bedecked with Christmas cheer! And some bicycles.

God is on hand to advise you on your choice of Christmas tree.

Turkey may be unheard of in these parts, but mouth-watering, lovingly-wrapped-in-cling-film chicken is yours for only 300 yen. Clucking great!

Christmas cake available in all good convenience stores at higher than usual prices. Merry Christmas!

Even the staff of Lawson are willing to catch pneumonia in the name of Crimbo! Yo ho ho!

A real tree.

A fake tree.

A fire hazard.

Japan. The only place in the world where God will try to sell you a Christmas tree. You'd think he'd have better things to do with His time...

That top picture- that looks like my flooring and my curtains... Have you broken in to take pictures of my Christmas "spread"?

Merry Christmas from centrally-heated England!

I had a Christmas in Cyprus once, it doesn't seem right celebrating Christmas in a warm and sunny Country.. Would like to try a Canadian Christmas..
