In America, Christmas is celebrated for religious reasons, but it's also as a celebration of friends, family, and giving. While most of us spend time with out families or friends, in Japan, it's the most romantic holiday of the year- even more so than Valentine's Day!
Shimmering lights and the colder weather can make a lot of us want to be in relationships, which is why it's so easy to relate with Christmas in Japan! On Christmas, couples exchange gifts, eat strawberry shortcake, and enjoy the lights all around the country.
This year, if you want to try a new kind of Christmas, try a romantic trip to Japan- it's the perfect way to celebrate the end of a wonderful year and the beginning of something new with a significant other.
