Beary Christmas!!

Russia RU-30379 received 01-07-2009

Sent by: Sanek
From: Moscow, Russia
ID number: RU-30379
Notes: Obviously, the first thing I noticed about this card was the adorable bears.  But then I looked more closely at the tree and realized that it was decorated with strawberries.  What??  This doesn't seem to be part of any sort of tradition in Russia, so I'm not sure why the strawberries are there.  The only country that seems to have a tradition involving strawberries is Japan.  They eat a cake similar to shortcake with strawberries for Christmas to go along with their KFC.  Yes, KFC is very popular in Japan on Christmas.  That may seem weird, but if you really want weird in Japan, watch their game shows!

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate, and for those who don't, Merry Friday! :)
