Or, alternatively, Happy birthday Jesus!
Thanks to the joys of scheduling posts, I'm not actually writing this on Christmas Day, I'm far too busy stuffing my face.
Thankfully, I've been able to avoid the typical Japanese KFC/McDonald's Christmas. Lunch is a vegetable restaurant with my newly pregnant friend. The choice of restaurant was based on what's best for her little aka-chan, and this place is popular among the healthiest people in town.
In the evening, we're taking advantage of the invitation tickets I was given for the local health club. It's a different way to spend Christmas Eve, but a bit of boxercise and a loll around in the jacuzzi/ hot stone spa/ sauna is a great way to get the festive season started, in my humble opinion.
Dinner will be at home, with a sinful amount of cake and possibly a nabe, based on the fact that nabe doesn't require hours in the kitchen and we can all congregate in the living room and cook together. Very festive.
I also plan on buying more snacks that is wise and trashing any illusion of a healthy lifestyle, despite the odd Christmas Eve gym visit. After all, I feel left out in January if I'm the only one not dieting. Might as well make it worth my while.
Boxing Day will bring some friends over for dinner and, hopefully, a good night will be had by all.
So, Merry Christmas, everyone. Hope you have a wonderful, joyful and happy day, whatever you end up doing.
