Christmas is approaching. During this period, my friends, brothers, and sisters show up here and there in town to celebrate Christmas. Some of them play the part of Santa Claus.

It might be a little too late, but let me tell you about this. On January 3rd, my mom went to a restaurant in Tokyo to have lunch with her friend.
