Spending Christmas abroad is tough business. I don’t really know how to put it into words, but something is just missing in the air. Maybe it’s the commercialism. Maybe it’s the exchange of presents, the Christmas parties, or even the cheesy songs on the radio.
Probably, it’s just the plain and simple fact that no one gives a crap about Christmas in Asia.
As I often mention on here, my life in Niigata was different from the typical foreigner. I was extremely isolated. Due to various falling outs with other foreigners, I was all alone. I had no one to share Christmas with.
