Thanks for all your comments. I hope there are no children reading this, because if there are, they might have been a bit shocked to find out that Santa Claus is not real! To be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure myself, so thanks for setting me straight. I suppose the whole question of Santa Claus must be quite difficult for parents. It’s a nice story for children to believe, but I wonder how they feel when they find out that their parents were lying to them? I was talking to a friend the other day who has a very smart daughter. He said that when she saw her present was something that she had seen before in Costco, she asked her dad, “Does Santa shop in Costco too?”

Anyway, Here is some feedback on your comments.

Sometimes it is only for my wife, or in another year, it is only for me.
Some years it is only for my wife, and other years, it is only for me.

The topic is very timely!
You could also say just “That was good timing!”

I think I’m going to be into this for a while! (What’s the word for しばらくハマりそう!in English?)
Your sentence sounds fine to me.

Maybe I should have said “I have some postcards of the Saturday Evening Post’s covers”. I’m not sure, though.
This is correct.

As you said in the blog, advent calender is not famous in Japan.
As you said in the blog, advent calendars are not common/popular in Japan.

I gave him a present for St. Nicholas Day without any qualification every year.

I wonder if you can say this: “Talking about Santa Claus works as if you’re playing your best card to make your children behave well.”
It’s correct, but it sounds a bit strange. I would just say “using it as a tool to make your children behave well.”

When I was a child, I interchanged gifts with my family member.
When I was a child, I exchanged gifts with the other members of my family.

That’s it for today. Have a great weekend, and I’ll be back with a new topic on Monday.

    Hi David and everyone,

    I felt a quite big tremor a little while ago.
    Apparenty, a Tsunami warning is issued for Miyagi prefecture. I just hope it isn’t as bad as 3.11.

    Thank you for your feedback, David.

    > but I wonder how they feel when they find out that their parents were lying to them?

    If you say so, it follows that the whole society is lying to children.
    As Kattie mentioned, I also think “by the time you know he definitely doesn’t exist, you are old enough to cope with it”. They might be a bit shocked for a while, but I don’t think it is a bad lie, and it often turns to become a good memory for them later. I don’t say children should always behave childlike, but I think encouraging children’s imaginations is very important in their development and telling them always only realities makes their mind poor. I never thought about it like that before having a child myself, though.

    > A helicopter, please!

    If you don’t mind to get a secondhand one, my son has one at home, a helicopter named Harold(a friend of Tohmas the Tank Engine). If you want it, please feel free to let me know.

    Hi Yu,

    It wasn’t Rosie singing, she found the video on youtube and showed it to me!!! She found the video so funny that when I was watching it with her, she was laughing so much she had tears streaming down her face!

    Hi David,

    >I buy a lot of Christmas presents – probably about 25.
    I have never met anyone who buys so many presents!

    Yes I know it’s a lot but I really think if you asked a lot of people in the UK to tot up how many presents they buy, you would find I’m not a complete weirdo – there are 9 in my sister’s family and Tom’s sister’s family and that’s just a start! Also, so many people are divorced now which means there are lots of step parents, step children and even step grandparents! I’ll be shopping for next year in a few weeks!



  3. kattie on 2012年12月08日 at 00:33

    I meant there are 9 altogether our sisters’ families!

    Hi David,
    Thank you for your feedback!

    >but I wonder how they feel when they find out that their parents were lying to them?
    – My parents told me that Santa Clause brought me a present every year when I was a child. And I never thoght my parents told me a lie even after I founded out that Santa was not real. I loved imagining him: a jolly, plump man with white beard in red clothes. Thogh this image of him is from the advertisement of Coca-Cola company. For anyone who does not know about it here is the link.

    Hi kattie,

    >It sounds like New Year in Japan is a bit similar to our Christmas but I didn’t know you give presents mid year too – is there a special reason for it?
    – The original idea of mid-year and year-end gifts are for sending something as a token of gratitude to someone who had kind to us but it is just a commonly practiced conduct for sometimes.

    >I’ll be shopping for next year in a few weeks!
    – As you said, you will start buying presents almost a year ago for next Christmas. I guess choosing so many presents might be a pain in the neck for some people!

    Hi everyone,

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback.
    >“Also, he is not the type to give presents” or “Also, he is not the present-giving type.”
    —“the present-giving type” It’s new to me. I like it.

    >>but I wonder how they feel when they find out that their parents were lying to them?—I don’t think this is not a kind of telling a lie, and I don’t think telling the “truth” is not always the right thing. It’s just my understanding,though…
    As far as this concerned, I couldn’t agree with Fumie more.
    Fumie, thanks for the link. I like the image on Coca-Cola; it’s nostalgic and nice.

    Having said that, as for the topic “Is Santa Claus real?”, there seem to have lots of opinions.
    Many people sharing their thoughts on the following site:

    Hi kattie,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. Yes, the story about the boy is very say and horrible.

    >Can you buy advent calendars easily in Japan or do you have to order them online?

    I searched the advent calender for several shops, but couldn’t find what I have been wanting, so I wondered if I should have asked for your help. Actually, I bought it on amazon. You can buy them at the shops easily in Japan, but most of them are for kids, so they are not to my taste.

    Hi Biwa,
    I’m afraid I missed your comment. You’ve already mentioned the story about the girl. I didn’t know the book was published!

    Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your feedback. I googled “Ducati Multistrada” this time and learned that it’s not a moble phone!

    Hi Kattie,

    I’m glad you like the Chris Rea song, too. It makes you feel that Chrismas is a family-gathering time, doesn’t it? If I had a big family like you, I’d buy 25 presents, too!

    The decoration at the book shop in your town sounds really lovely. Those stories remind me of another film “You’ve got mail”. Have ever seen it? The heroine(Meg Ryan) runs a lovely little children’s book shop called “The shop around the corner” in NY. It’s Christmas time, and everything is decorated beautifully, including the cozy-looking reading corner with rugs and cushions. I think we don’t have these old little book shops in Japan so much. We have lots of chain stores, and we do have second-hand book shops, but they’re just old and don’t seem to mind about decorating their places.
    However, we have a nice little bakery and flower shop in our town, and I love seeing them especially at this time of the year.

    Lastly, just to make sure, the shortcakes here are a bit different from the ones you have (I think!). They’re beautifully decorated with lots of cream and strawberries. Of course we don’t have strawberries now, so they’re greenhouse grown and amazingly expensive!
    For my family, I like to buy or bake other kinds like “Stollen” or “Panetone”(the cakes or maybe you might call them bread with dried fruit). What kind of cakes do you have for Christmas?
    If you’re interested, here are some typical Christmas shortcakes:http://www.google.co.jp/search?q=%E3%82%AF%E3%83%AA%E3%82%B9%E3%83%9E%E3%82%B9%E3%82%B1%E3%83%BC%E3%82%AD&hl=ja&tbo=u&rlz=1T4SNJA_ja___JP392&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ei=C4jCUI7HD-vnmAXLmoDwDw&ved=0CFsQsAQ&biw=1185&bih=461

    Hi Kattie,

    > It wasn’t Rosie singing, she found the video on youtube and showed it to me!!!

    Oh, sorry for my misunderstanding!
    I felt sure that it was Rosie singing !!

    Hi Anne,

    Thank you for the interesting link.
    It was fun to read many opinions on the subject of Santa. I was a bit surprised at reading the following opinion from someone because it was exactly what I wrote here(on this blog).
    面白いリンクありがとうございます。サンタに対してはみんな色々と思いがあるのですね。下の意見を読んでちょっと驚きました。今まで私が書いてきた(つもりの!)意見にすごく似ていたものですから。

    – But if you’re a skeptic then most likely no, because as you grow older you come to realize that it is none other than your parents placing those presents under the tree (it was my mother’s handwriting that did it in for me) but deep down it is a sense that it was like a childhood memory that even adults still cherish and present to their children’s minds and hearts to help build their imagination and let them believe in something because as they grow older they tend to lose their sense of childlike innocence and it’s a way of holding on… that and for at least a month. But yes as someone else said it, “Santa Claus is as real as one wishes him to be”.

    > make it to where they behave for at least a month

    Therefore, we need other gods and demons like なまはげ, 雷神, 鬼, 閻魔大王, too!
    残念ながらサンタ効果は1ヶ月くらいしか続かないので他の神様や鬼もやっぱり必要ですよね?!(´▽`)

    I totally agree with the following, too.

    – What I think is that parents want to teach their children a lesson by putting gifts under the tree. So what they’re saying is that it is better to give than receive.

    Anyway, whether you believe in Santa or not, I’m sure that he is a super celebrity and very nice person.
    サンタを信じるかどうかは個人の自由ですが、彼が超有名人でものすごくいい人なのは間違いないように思います。

    Hi Biwa,

    Thank you for the pictures! They all look so delicious!!
    You probably know this, but apparently, “decoration cake” is a Japanese-English. It is called “decorated cake” or “fancy cake” in English, so Japanese style Christmas cakes should be “Christmas decorated/fancy cake” correctly?!

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback as always. I hope your wish comes true!

    Hi kattie,

    Thank you for sharing a good web-site! I will try it. This season makes us feel happy and at the same time feel busy. As you know, there is a custom in Japan that we exchange New Year’s cards. Next weekend I am printing a picture and greetings on cards, and adding few words of my own on each of them. It will be over 200 cards for both of my husband and I. Anyway, I’m going out for reserving Christmas decorated cake.

    Hi everyone,

    Have a great weekend!

    Kimi



  12. YU on 2012年12月08日 at 16:46

    Hi everyone,

    Did you see this news?

    http://www.japantoday.com/category/world/view/royal-hoax-radio-presenters-off-show-until-further-notice-after-nurse-found-dead

    It’s too sad.
    I’m thinking who should be blamed for her death.
    Anyway, although she(the nurse) was too careless, but I don’t think she needed to kill herself.

    Hi Kimi,

    As you say, writing New Year’s cards is really hard work every year!

    > Anyway, I’m going out for reserving Christmas decorated cake.

    I read in somewhere that “reserve” is used for hotels or restaurants, and for a decorated cake at the cake shop, I guess “order” is the proper verb, so “order a Christmas (decorated) cake”.

    Hi everyone,

    To tell the truth, I had never expected that there are so many parents pretend to be Santa for their children, not to mention that there are so many children believe in Santa until I was grown up. All your comments made me feel like I am from another planet….

    >“Is there a Santa Claus?(サンタクロースっているんでしょうか?)”

    Yes, I have heard this before, but it was the first time that I had read whole story. To be honest, I don’t like the editor’s answer, especially at this part “your little friends are wrong.” He didn’t have the right to say anything like that. It’s really up to each child to believe in Santa or not. So I wish that the editor would have had a generous hearted 🙁 I think the editor should’ve been in a neutral setting.

    >They’re just used as something like “ultimate weapons” to make their kids behave well.

    If so my parents never ever needed Santa. Because their children(including me) were very good children 😉 We always behaved ourselves lol

    >I’m wondering how you could do that…
Did your parents tell you that Santa Claus was fiction when you were small?

    Like taco, I never thought that Santa was real, and he was an imaginary character to me. He was nothing more than that like other characters in the fairy tales, so I didn’t even bother to ask whether he does exist to my parents. Needless to say, I never said that he didn’t exist to my friends. I wasn’t such a party pooper 😉

    Hi David,

    Thanks for your feedback.

    >I wonder how they feel when they find out that their parents were lying to them?

    I can’t answer this because it didn’t happen to me. I can’t imagine myself pretending to be Santa if I have children lol

    Have a nice weekend 🙂

    Hi amo,

    > To be honest, I don’t like the editor’s answer, especially at this part “your little friends are wrong.”

    I think so, too.
    The part is unnecessary.

    > I think the editor should’ve been in a neutral setting.

    I agree with you.
    Furthermore, I felt it was a bit too difficult for an 8-year-old girl.

    > I had never expected that there are so many parents pretend to be Santa for their children

    I don’t think many parents(including my husband and I) pretend to be Santa.
    Of course, you mean “parents pretended that Santa existed, and HE brought presents to their children”, right?

    > If so my parents never ever needed Santa. Because their children(including me) were very good children

    Same here!, but my elder brother wasn’t!!

    Hi David,

    Thank you for your feedback!

    Hi everyone,

    How was the weather? We had snow in this afternoon in Tokai area. I bought a woolen scarf to arm myself against the cold!

    Have a nice weekend.

    Hi everyone,

    Yesterday, I noticed that there was something wrong with my bike. It kind of meandered? against my will. I don’t have a car, so it’s something I really need and use everyday that I sometimes call it “my cute little BMW!” ( I wonder if this phrase makes sense in Germany, because it must be less expensive to buy a BMW in Germany!). Well, it’s just a ママチャリ, though. Anyway, I went to the local bike shop and asked what was wrong. The shop owner (自転車屋のおじちゃん) immediately answered “Ah-, this is too old! The wheel frame is crooked and it’s too dangerous to ride this any more! You must get off, right now!” I knew it was quite old (maybe 10 years or so), but I wasn’t really ready to get a new one especially at this money-spending season. So I told him that I can’t afford a new one right now, but I will be sure to buy a new one from him. lol! He said okay, and even lent me a replacement! Isn’t he nice? Anyway, the way he helped me nicely made me think that I’ll go and get a new one as soon as possible. I really like these little shop owner’s “downtowny characters”.
    I wonder how you say 下町気質(したまちかたぎ)in English.

    Hi amo,

    Thanks for the word “party pooper”. Very useful.

    Hi YU,

    Thanks for the link. Another tragedy caused by those nosey paparazzis. Why don’t they just leave them alone?



  17. Kimi on 2012年12月09日 at 10:52

    Hi YU,

    Thank you for pointing out. I wondered which word is appropriate. I got it!



  18. Biwa on 2012年12月09日 at 11:31

    Hi Anne,

    No problem. I’ve learned two new words “editorial” and “query” from your comment. Thanks!

    By the way, I’ve just received an e-mail from my friend saying that she’s going to Costco and asking who wants to join. I’m joining! Maybe I can see Santa shopping there.



  19. Anne on 2012年12月10日 at 09:10

    Hi YU and everyone,

    I read the news,too. It’s so sad.
    I can’t believe that two DJs thought such a hoax were allowed. I wonder if people don’t have the respect for the Royal family any more. Also, I’m wondering if they(the twoDJs) could not imagine their thoughtless hoax call could cause this kind of sad incident. They seem to be investigated from the UK.
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20651246

    According to the news, there is support and sympathy for the two DJs,too.

    It’s snowing here in Nagoya. I can’t complain when I think of people living in the heavy snowfall areas,though…

    See you soon,

    Anne



  20. Biwa on 2012年12月10日 at 15:32

    Hi everyone,

    I went to the bike shop again and ordered a navy one. I’ll go and get it as soon as おじさんfinishes setting it up. Hooray!



  21. Anne on 2012年12月10日 at 16:19

    Hi Biwa,

    Good for you! Brand-new bike sounds like a Christmas present for you^^)
    By the way, it’s very kind of him!
