'Tis The Season

Now the life's been sucked out of Halloween, and with shopping a close third to getting excessive amounts of sleep and visiting Disneyland in the average Japanese teenager's list of must-do everyday activities, Tokyo's department stores are already gearing up for their next big event.

That's right, Christmas.

..that's been getting me for a few years now - shops over here stock up on and display Christmas decoration, sweets and must-have gifts as early as mid-September. And as soon as the fat old man with the red coat has done one for the pole again it's easter bunnies...
makes me sick...

It's even stranger in a country where only about 0.5% of the population would describe themselves as Christian and the only remotely indigenous Yueltide custom is scoffing a KFC bargain bucket for Christmas dinner.
