Do they do a lot for Christmas in Japan?  Different base religion, but I imagine they're equally enthused by the commercial and family aspects?

The KFC Christmas thing is very real and very brilliant.
Christmas is a thing in Japan, albeit on a much smaller scale and curiously considered more of a "couples" thing than a "family" thing.

Merry Christmas

I got this lot for Xmas (minus Secret Santa) and £407 Cash (which isn't pictured, also I got £30 of that a few weeks ago which I've spent and £12 is off scratch cards that I need to go collect)



The main things are the SNES Mini which I'll talk about in it's thread and signed picture of Kevin De Bruyne.

Then a bunch of retro games my grandparents would have picked up at boot sales / charity shops unfortunately none really for my collection, link amiibo which I do already own, then bit's like smellys and pants & socks (not in picture along with some shoes) etc

The one thing I'm not sure about is the Retro-Bit (they are partnering with SEGA and talking Saturn & Dreamcast related stuff soon Very Happy ) Super Retro Trio, it's cool but I can't plug it into the TV without fiddling as it's not HDMI (I could run via my Elgato) and I don't own any NES or SNES carts (famicom's I think will work as well) and I don't really want to get back into collecting for either of them plus the decent games are pricey for both of those. Which leaves the Mega Drive part and I've got a Mega Drive for that, if I was trying save space like what the box says and not have 3 consoles out at the same time but it be replacing one for one and I can't even remember the last time I even bought a Mega Drive game. All that sounds bad but I do think it's neat and I get why my Dad bought it being retro etc and he paid a lot for it but I just don't know when or why I would use it.

Clearly the best thing in that pic os Don King boxing! Laughing

Belated Merry Christmas to you all. Hope it went well (I see a lot of Switch stories!); mine wasn't that painful this year.

Man, Christmas in a restaurant is the polar opposite of Christmas in retail. We were dead quiet in the run up to the big day, and on boxing day, but between Christmas and New Year we've been insane. I'm talking packed from open until close, mad understaffed, having to work 13-hour shifts. Still, lots of hours and lots of tips means big ol' paychecks in my final month before Japan, so I ain't complaining!

Welcome to the hospitality sector!

I worked one Christmas time in retail, and six in hospitality. Retail, quite honestly, was a piece of piss - no bother at all. Hospitality was an arse kicking though, every year, without fail, for the reasons you listed. Ooft.

What's everybody doing for Hogmanay and New Year's Day? I don't know what I'm doing yet Pale

My wife has a night shift, so I will be at home with the cats, chilling quietly. Cool

NYE party with The Lady's friends, somewhere in the back of beyond. Standard stuff. Will go home shortly after midnight, probably.

Hope you find some plans, Cappa! As for Zero, any plan involving cats is a good plan. Smile I believe the back of beyond locale also has cats.

I'm meeting a couple of people from work, and probably drinking and dancing until some daft time Monday morning.

Despite that, I would never go back. Retail was miserable in a way hospitality hasn't been so far. I get along with everyone, the people all want to be here and I'm selling nice food I actually believe they should try.
