  • After Thanksgiving is Christmas!

  • I think most people would be familiar with Christmas

  • It is a religious holiday

  • such as Jesus' birthday

  • I think everyone knows it

  • religious people celebrate Christmas in a religious way

  • Non-religious people will have some fun in this day

  • for my family

  • we are not religious at all

  • and we don't have the tradition of celebrating Christmas

  • For us, Christmas used to mean winter break

  • Right now

  • this little guy, is very into Christmas

  • therefore, we celebrate a little bit

  • Besides the religious activities

  • One of the most important thing for Christmas is decoration

  • They hang Christmas light on the outside of the house

  • put up Christmas trees

  • hang ornaments all over the Christmas tree

  • Meanwhile, they give gifts during Christmas

  • see, America is an industry country

  • even gifts are industralized

  • you can by a set from store

  • in my last Thanksgiving video

  • I said American shops like crazy during Thankgiving

  • a large factor is

  • they were shopping for Christmas gifts

  • so from this perspective

  • I like Thanksgiving better

  • because we only have to eat during Thanksgiving

  • Do they have any special food for Christmas?

  • What I can think of is eggnog, a beverage

  • There are two types on the market:

  • one is a dairy drink

  • you can find it in the dairy session

  • other kind is an alcoholic product

  • I think the later one tastes better

  • The dairy one tastes too sweet

  • I don't like it

  • it tastes very eggie, creamy, and thick

  • the alcoholic one tastes brighter

  • another Christmas element is the scent of Christmas

  • they will light up scented candles

  • with Christmas charactristies

  • like cinnamon and nutmeg

  • the smell provided the atmosphere of Christmas

  • They wrap up the gift on Christmas eve

  • put it under the Christmas tree

  • then families open their present first thing in Christmas morning

  • gingerbread house,

  • is another Christmas element

  • It is made of cookies

  • Then you glue it up with icing

  • then decorate it

  • I think most people had seen this before

  • in the movie Shrek

  • the Gingerman was tortured by the bad guy

  • I had baked it once from scratch

  • it turned out like this

  • so I bought the kit from store this year

  • it came with everything you need

  • just go ahead and decorate it

  • It doesn't taste good

  • And, Santa Claus

  • Especially for the people who is not religious

  • they will enforce the existence of this big guy to their children

  • see, they will also dress up their car like a reindeer

  • you can tell their obsession about transportations

  • If the story of Santa Claus may have some historical background

  • another figure in American culture does not make sense to me at all:

  • The tooth fairy

  • I couldn't understand

  • Adult made up these things for the kids

  • then when they grow up,

  • their hearts will be broken once they know the truth

  • another thing to do during Christmas is ice skating!

  • Christmas movies always have skating scenes

  • it makes me feel like it is a Christmas tradition

  • winter is skate season

  • Christmas is a fun holiday for me

  • because I'm only take the fun part of Christmas

  • sending presents and home decorations are more trouble than fun to me

  • so I skip these things all together

  • In my previous Thanksgiving video

  • I mentioned that

  • Thanksgiving is a holiday about family reunion

  • Christmas does not have that bold family theme

  • People will visit their families

  • because you can take a break during Christmas

  • Christmas plus New Year, you can almost have two weeks break

  • and the winter break in America is just two weeks

  • they will start school after two weeks of break

  • I was jealous about their summber break

  • which is about 3 months

  • then look at how little winter break they have

  • I feel less jealousy

  • even though someone will come home to visit their family

  • they are not into family reunion during Christmas

  • Still, Thanksgiving is the holiday for family

  • Christmas is a more casual visit

  • Thanks for watching this episode about Christmas

  • I hope you don't think my Christmas is too simple and light

  • see you next time!

After Thanksgiving is Christmas!
