Merry Christmas そしてHappy new year! みなさんいかがお過ごしですか？ことみです。本当に濃い2ヶ月で
Merry Christmas and Happy new year everyone! It’s Kotomi! How you guys doing? I’m doing pretty good. I guess Sapporo is pretty cold out side so take care yourself. It’s super freezing here like 28 degrees below zero. Lol Well, it was very concentrated two month. I had lots of exciting things so I’m gonna talk about them in order. First of all, I had foot ball banquit on November. It’s like party for foot ball players in VM foot ball team. I guess you know it already, but I should say it again. My host brother plays foot ball and my host dad is coach of the team. That’s kind of funny, don’t you think? Anyway, I went the party because I’m one of Steeves family. I really appreciate that they treat me as same as family. So I helped to decorate there before the party start. The party was kinda long like four hours and I had fun! My brother got most character award. Also he had speech with his bbf. It was greenness for me to see such a formal Sam. Lol At that time, we took family picture and guess what? Mom used the picture to new years card! I’m already sad to think that I have to leave here and my Canadian family.
Second, I had big Christmas! Japan should celebrate Christmas like Canada and USA, I swear! I loved Christmas when I was in japan, but not much as Canadian one. Christmas is biggest holiday in Canada so people prepare for it about a month. Dad said it’s crazy season. Lol My sis loves Christmas very much so it’s all Christmas inside house. There are big Christmas tree, mistletoe and Christmas lights on roofs. The Christmas tree is real tree! Can you believe that? I’ve never see real one before so that’s big fun! I got tons of presents from host family and grand parents. Of course, I gave gifts to all oh them. I was proud that they loved my gifts. So it took four hours to open all gifts under the tree. Every gifts are specific, but the best one is ornament that shapes tree and engraved my name. it made me almost crying lol. I thought it’s over but it wasn’t. Dad works me up on 26th morning and we opened stocking! I almost forgot about Christmas socks because I got too enough 25th. Anyway, it was the best holiday ever!
Speaking of holidays, new years eve was quit so I like Japanese one better. That was culture shock actually. I felt strange because there’s no osechi and new years TV show that I’ve seen so far. I’m too sad that I missed Johnney’s count down concert. Well these are good experience tho. Four month are already passed so I should work harder than before and I have to talk a lot! I thought why languages are different cuz we’re all same human. However, I noticed kindness is completely same.OMG Tomorrow(1/9) gonna start school. It’s too short! Well that’s all for this time. Thanks for reading. See ya soonJ
