La vita 'e dura, vero...

This picture is shot, inspired by Eric, Paris Daily Photo.

A old man are sleeping by a fir tree, ornamented with silver and gold rings for X'mas and some people pass by the man. But, strange to say, he is too neat to be a beggar. Perhaps, he may be a new one.

I am posting a Xmas tree today too!
But I do find your photo very disturbing. I'm always worried that some of these people might need medical attention.

Konnichi wa!

I am often surprised that so many non-christian countries celebrate Christmas! I guess can be attributed to American movies and television and the commercialization of the holiday.

I used to know a lot of Japanese people (more than 50% of my former office was Japanese) but all I learned was "hello", "Hell" on the telephone (moshi, moshi),thank you, and "is that so?" ! They really liked to party at night! We had lots of fun!

Domo arigato for the pictures!

The simple ornaments in the tree remind me of when I lived in Conifer Colorado. We lived about 3 miles up a hill side, and ever Christmas, someone would hang a single ornament on a tree every ¼ to ½ mile or so up the road. It got to be a game looking for them.

nathalie: I agree with you. More attention will be needed since it get colder.
susan: Nice Japanese! I think that Christmas and Halloween are just for fun and no longer have any meanings in Japan. Also Christmas is used just as a tool for producing a romanitic atmosphere.
bill: Nice game! This type of ornament is popular in Japan.
jing: thank you. the other side of Christmas...
