Merry Christmas!

December 25, 2012

Right now I’m in snowy Sapporo enjoying a very VERY white Christmas with Jess. Yesterday (Christmas Eve) we treated ourselves to seeing The Hobbit and today we spent the afternoon in Otaru, a city forty minutes from Sapporo famous for its glass. There will be a future blog post on all of that, but I wanted to drop in to leave a few things my fifth grade students asked from Santa this year for Christmas.

In the last week of school before our two-week winter break, English class consisted of writing letters to Santa using the following Target Language:

Dear Santa,
I want ___________.
Thank you,
[name]

So, without further ado, here are my favorites of what my kids wrote to Santa for.

I want…

a Nintendo 3DS (this and 3DS games were the most common answers)
hamsters
a library card
a UFO catcher (those claw games that take away all of your quarters)
a camera
Doraemon (info here)
Santa himself
a dog
money
a soccer jersey
Indian curry with rice
and my absolute favorite, a lot of books

Happy holidays everyone! Keep an eye out for some upcoming posts. For now, here’s a picture of a small Santa and a 100 yen Christmas card in the shape of a tree taken by the manga camera application on my American phone. 🙂
