Christmas in Japan
Godzilla....is he worshiping? Is there a baby there? Has he already devoured the nativity characters? I have no idea....but it IS Christmas in Japan. This was taken at Aqua City in Odaiba. Apparently, Godzilla blows smoke as well.
This, our fourth Christmas in Japan, I continue to reflect on how strange it is to celebrate the birth of Christ in a nation with little understanding of the incarnation of Christ as savior. BUT - they love the cultural aspects of Americanism.....and so are very friendly and willing to hear about why WE celebrate Christmas.
Living all of life before the face of God...
