Celebrate Christmas like the Japanese do.  Only a small percentage are
Catholic (the rest are Shinto or Buddhist) but the rest put up a tree
and give gifts.  Its more a get together of family and friends than a
religious holiday.  Its also a popular time for proposals and
weddings.  Also, traditional Japanese culture doesn't celebrate
Birthdays with a party and gifts but with a special dinner and gifts
are given at New Years, but like with Christmas they've pretty much
adopted the western custom of parties and gifts on Birthdays.  I'm
such an Otaku.
