This “Santa” looks like he might show up with a bag full of aliens, then click his ball pen at you to make you forget he didn’t actually leave you anything under the tree
Only in Japan does anyone think it’s remotely festive to dress up like a reindeer
And it’s hard to imagine being filled with yuletide glee after Bank Robber Rudolph and Lucha Treehead crash your holiday get-together
Deadpool Santa has already taken out his rival inflatable counterpart in the battle for Xmas hearts and minds

And it’s comforting to know that not only do you not have to decide between being Red or being the wolf, you don’t even have to be female to reap that Sexy Santa goodness

Happy holidays, fellow Japan warriors! And don’t forget that…

…it just won’t be Parallel Universe Christmas Eve without Colonel Santa dishing out the strangest Japanese Xmas tradition of all

Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
