Twelve Months to the Double Nickel - December Edition

Tomorrow is the first day of my birthday month – yes, the double nickel! I love my birthday and plan to celebrate all of this month, but not excessively.  I want to continue with the good things I’ve started and get past the medical challenges I’ve had the last few months.

Christmas isn't a holiday in Japan, but some places still decorate like it was.  Here are some photos Ted took of holiday decorations at the Sapporo Factory last week.


  1. Good rules for living well are the best birthday presents one can give oneself. You are lucky to celebrate your birthday in December which is always so beautifully decorated and full of joy.

  2. Congratulations on your birthday month. I suspect the postman might not work a miracle and have the package to you for the first. I love the way you celebrate the month! Many happy returns.

  3. Have a lovely and joyful celebration ! :))
    December is my birthday month, as well (on the 14th), The Season adds some magic , and I love it...

    Happy December to you !

  5. Hooray for the double nickel!!
