I got pictures from my host father "Frank" who lives in Monterey California. Can you see the picture of the Christmas tree? It's almost same as tall as the ceiling and it has a lovely Hello Kitty's ornament! I think his daughter bought the Hello Kitty because she like this character so much.:) They'll celebrate Christmas with exchange students from foreign countries! They had a Christmas party with about 10 Chinese students at his home last year. They sung Christmas songs and had dinner. He showed me the pictures and videos when I stayed at his house in my summer vacation. I wanted to go the Christmas party but the cross cultural program in Kendai is in summer... But my host father sent me a Christmas presents-purse, pouch, chocolate and Christmas ornament! I always remember him and his family when I see something which they gave me. I want to go back to Monterey so much!!!
