That time of year

It’s that time of the year again when most families across America have gotten their trees out of the attic, basement or shed, have just bought their first plastic tree or have gone out to the Christmas Tree lot to let the kids pick out their favorite tree. More Americans this year are deciding to get a freshly cut tree. Picking out a tree in a lot or in a field on the outskirts of town is a huge family event. More than twenty million trees will be sold from these lots or fields this year in America. Trees are often placed near living room windows so it can be seen from outside. Tree skirts are wrapped underneath the tree for the presents to rest on, angels or stars are often placed atop the trees with bulbs and ornaments hung on the branches and lights and tinsel wrapped around the tree from top to bottom. Presents are often placed beneath the tree weeks in advance leaving children desperate for Christmas day to come when they’ll get up extra early, rush to their parents room to wake them, drag them out of bed to the living room where each member of the family starts tearing their own gifts loose from the wrapping paper. Many Americans will take down their trees a few days after New Years, box them up or throw them onto the curb, where, in my home town they are all taken to a large dump to be burned with a large group of locals and media in attendance to mark The Burning of the Greens.



Tech Thursday

The Nintendo switch is selling like hotcakes. (飛ぶように売れる)

‘The news reflects the demand for the Switch and blockbuster game titles including Animal Crossing, which has proved a hit during the isolation of the pandemic.”

People staying at home created a demand for the portable game system.

Did you buy the Nintendo switch since the pandemic began?
