A giant Christmas motif display in the Kitte Building in Tokyo. The display runs until Dec 25. The display features mizuhiki, an ancient art form using string created from rice paper, that is tightly wound, starched to give it stiffness, and then colored.

Indigo, I think that is a bit harsh. I don't think it means they have no respect for Christianity. Actually, I think they have real respect for Christianity, but yes, it is too bad they miss the most important part of the holiday. But look at it this way. At least it provides a good chance for us to share the true meaning, hope, and joy of Christmas. So actually, I'm glad that they decorate for the holiday, even if they don't fully understand it. And, to be honest, I think they do a good job of decorating as well.
