☆ celebrate 祝う
Oh my goodness, you have a 10-day holiday starting today, right? Let’s celebrate! The good news for me, is that I have a 10-day holiday too! Kind of… all my English coaching clients are in Japan, and on vacation, so technically, I’m on vacation too! Unfortunately, my kids are still at school, and so there’s no way we can really celebrate by going on holiday or anything.
So, what are you doing with all this time off? How are you celebrating? Will you travel somewhere? Or do a “staycation” in your own city? When I lived in Tokyo, I would always do a staycation during this Golden Week period. Everyone else would leave the city, so my little area (Kichijoji) was a lot less busy than usual, and so that was how I celebrated! Enjoying the peace and quiet of Inokashira park. I wonder if it is still less busy during this time or if staying home has become a more common way of celebrating Golden Week.
