Christmas in the Trenches – Christmas Truce of 1914

The following song is from a practice session I recorded of The Secret Commonwealth doing a rendition of John McCutcheon’s Christmas in the Trenches. The song is based on an unexpected and unofficial truce made by the common fighting men on both sides and not the higher ups who frowned on such things.

As I said, it’s a practice session so it might be a little rough and there’s a cough or two.

The singer is Don Clark

Tokyo Decadance Pirate Christmas

Tokyo Decadance Pirate Christmas
Have Yourself a Piratey Little Christmas, Maties!

Christmas has rolled around once more and Tokyo Decadance that eclectic melting pot of subcultures celebrates the holiday season with Santa and Pirates. One gives while the other takes. Considering the latter have probably been on the naughty list for so long that it’s only natural that Pirates should want a little for themselves.

A Bit of Christmas in Japan

A Bit of Christmas in Japan

user posted image

Although Christmas is not an official holiday in Japan, it is observed in other ways.

On Christmas Eve and Christmas, one can find lines of Japanese standing outside of KFC for a little bit of the Colonel’s Christmas Chicken.

Christmas Cake is a popular item which sells for about 30-50 bucks at convenience stores. It’s also a term used to refer to women over 26.

For young couples, Christmas is a big date night and many of them go to love hotels.

Santa Spotting and Reindeer Games in Tokyo

Santa Spotted in a Tokyo Station

Santa Strolling Thru a Tokyo Station

Times must be tough at the North Pole as Santa Claus is forced to lay off his reindeer and resort to Public Transportation. While I was changing trains at a station in Tokyo, I came across Santa doing a milk run in Tokyo trying out the train system.

Later, Santa was spotted at an English School earning a few extra dollars – or rather a stronger yen – to get by before the holiday season started.

Reindeer Games

Meanwhile, while Santa was moonlighting and riding the trains, some of his reindeer were seen shooting pool and drinking in a Tokyo Pool Hall.
