On The Tenth Day Of Christmas Blogging…

Kimi ni Todoke, a series I’m very personally torn on, has its Christmas episode explored in a very in-depth post. This post gets me because it acknowledges that Christmas isn’t a thing in Japan – for good reason – and yet managed to pull an episode so full of heart out of it. Yes, even in a country where they don’t do the Western version, Western values have bled through enough to make this a wonderful and touching thing.

This is especially true since Sawako’s family does a more traditional Christmas, where you celebrate with family. As people grow up and move out from their parents’ houses, they start having Christmas parties and celebrations with friends… no wonder Sawako’s dad is upset! It’s a sign his baby is growing up and starting to move on.

Fantastic post about a fantastic episode.
