We had a fabulous Christmas!!
We went to the Christmas Festival at the Okinawa Zoo. They advertised "snow" so we had to go!! They had a small section on the lawn where they made snow for the kids to play in. They also made little igloos. The machine they had making the "snow" was really a giant snow cone maker that would grind squares of ice and blow it out of a large tube. Hey, the kids didn't know the difference.
With the setting of the sun came the light show. This was truly a Japanese Experience. There was a medley of Christmas songs (in Japanese) and other random songs (like Michael Jackson's Thriller) playing while beams of lights made shapes in the fog. Occasionally there would be fire explosions and fireworks. We loved it!! The song in the video is the end of, "I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus"
