Well, the origins of Christmas doesnt have a romantic relation at all... (dont worry, I wont bother explaining). Probably the reason it seems *romantic* is due to the relation with snow....other than that, practically any other festive season/holiday can be *romantic* if you add your own element of romance to it...

Like, would it be romantic if you spend Valentines day at home rather than at a classy restaurant with flowers and wine and stuff?

I wasn't referring to Christmas having romantic origins....this is specifically how people from Japan treat this. Japan is not a 'Christian' country so my relatives don't treat it as a so-called Christian holiday....even though it has pagan origins...but anyway...this is going a bit off-topic don't you think.

By the way, I'm part Japanese from the US, so I'm yes I know what the 'supposed' true meaning is

Yeah, I know the feeling.

Everyone here seems to be experiencing a bit of anxiety as well. Can't blame 'em.

It's the general internet assumption, everyone you meet is male unless they type in large pink writing =) Often then they're assumed to be male too Don't worry about it.

Only about 4 days to go people

If someone mistakes me for male (which happens more than I care to admit IRL even though I have long hair and wear skirts on occasion Go figure) here, I'm going to have to wonder about their observation skills. *comforts LW* Poor kid.

Didn't know you are a woman until I see your profile. I think I should start writing pink letters.
