Wishing Everyone A Belated Merry Christmas in February

I’ve been busy and a bit distracted lately but I didn’t want February to pass without wishing everyone a Merry Christmas in February. Since Christmas in February is a holiday that my family created 16 years ago I don’t expect most of those reading to even realize I was late in the first place :) .

For those reading that have never heard of Christmas in February, it’s pretty much what you’d guess it would be.  The impetus to start came from the realization that there’s always Christmas cookies left over and normally a turkey (or ham or Cornish hens or some other holiday-type meat) that was bought cheaply during the holiday season still in the freezer and no real good way to finish them. So,  for fun, my family started with picking a day in February and having a Christmas-style dinner but, as things normally go, we slowly increased what we did for Christmas in February – we got a small 2 foot artificial tree and started decorating it then my parents started buying a small, inexpensive gift for us all. Which snowballed into a bigger Christmas tree and the $5 dollar gifts have now gotten to be $15 dollar gifts and now we invite extended family members to come :) .

One of the nice things about Christmas in February is that we get to pick when in February we want to celebrate it – this year, it was on February 19th but next year might be the second Tuesday or the last Saturday of the month. Another nice thing is that it gives the dreary month of February a holiday that’s fun. There’s also a near 100% chance of having a white Christmas in February though this year was the first time we had a green Christmas in February. Also, since it’s not the official Christmas, it has all the nice parts of the holiday without any of the stress.

This was only about a third of the leftover cookies that needed eating.

And since this is an anime blog here are some Christmas themed anime pictures:

  1. Christmas in January is guaranteed, one-hundred-percent snow. There hasn’t been a single January in my extended memory that hasn’t had at least one snow day.

    Though, I guess it’s not really a belated Christmas in February if you’ve posted this in February, eh? If this year weren’t a leap year, then it might be :P

  2. The patch for Steins;Gate English is out on VN shourai dot net.

    Better get it if you plan to play that game soon, because I think the group’s collapse due to argument over financial settlements is going to end up one way or another. And it won’t be pretty.
