Christmas is coming again and Japanese stores have been into the spirit since the first day after Halloween. Santas and Christmas trees everywhere, and I’m expecting the music on the radio stations to repeatedly play Wham and Mariah Carey soon. Honestly, I can’t wait; I love Christmas! Starbucks has been selling various special Christmas coffees already, new merchandise, pies and cookies all inspired by the holiday, like this candle cake:
One of my private students who wanted to have her lesson in Starbucks in stead of school, which unfortunately wasn’t allowed, so as a compromise she went to Starbucks before class to get some coffee to drink during class. And this pretty Christmas candle cake is what she brought back for me, isn’t that sweet?
