  • This is it!

  • 2020 is done, and the world will never be the same.

  • Even though 2020 ended very different from other years,

  • all the hardships of the year couldn't hold back a super special year end celebration.

  • Goodbye 2020, it's time to embrace 2021.

  • What will the new year bring?

  • [Life in Japan Theme Song]

  • Look! A Merry Christmas sunrise. Oh yea!

  • I'm going to come and see, camera.

  • Where are the Christmas lights?

  • See? The pink sky. Very nice, huh?

  • It's orange, not pink.

  • It's Christmas!

  • It's Christmas cakes, huh?

  • Christmas pancakes!

  • Yum! They look good!

  • This is already my second pancake. It's already your second Christmas cake?

  • Merry Christmas!

  • We're going to school. Going to school on Christmas?!

  • What is going on here?

  • I've been working on a secret project which is making the girls their own little desks.

  • And they're going to have their own little magnetic board above each desk.

  • So now the kids just went to school,

  • And we're rearranging their room while they're gone.

  • So when they get home, it's the Christmas surprise.

  • The desks are in! Now we have to put some drawers in.

  • Momma chan is probably going to decorate a little bit.

  • Watch out, Joshua!

  • Can this be mine? No.

  • Why? Only when you get to shyogakkou (elementary school)

  • Now what are we measuring for? Get this centered.

  • If 2020 has taught us anything, it's the importance of perspective.

  • We can choose to be overcome by hardships, or let the hardships make us into stronger people.

  • Oh, and up here we have the Christmas racetrack, huh?

  • 3, 2, 1 — the red one wins! Whoa!

  • Wow, Dude, that is awesome!

  • It's hard work to keep the right perspective, but it's worth all the effort.

  • Drawers underneath. Whiteboards on top.

  • Desks to do their homework.

  • And a Christmas tree for good measure.

  • I did it! We're all setup for the livestream tonight.

  • It's going to be our first livestream ever.

  • I really don't know what to expect except I imagine it's going to be a great time of interaction with all of you!

  • And to be able to say "hi" and answer questions and show what we do for Christmas.

  • I'm looking forward to it!

  • Well, it's time, huh? To start some setup here? Yes please!

  • Do you want to do some races first? Yea right!

  • A couple more things for Christmas! Some stocking stuffers and masks.

  • And some sleds.

  • Even though we don't really get a lot of snow here they can use it on the slides and it makes them go really fast.

  • Oh boy! Might even need to go try that out at some point, huh?

  • It's all cute! Christmas placemats. Are we going to have a meal here?

  • Yeah! Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

  • Ham and mashed potatoes. Ham and mashed potatoes, mnnnnn.

  • Um, ham time! Yes, ham time!

  • Oh my goodness!

  • Yum yum yum!

  • In Japan, a big deal is fried chicken at Christmas.

  • But for Americans, a lot of times it's ham or turkey.

  • The girls should be getting home soon, so I'm going to go, get into their room and hide in there

  • And get their reaction as they get home from school and see their desks!

  • Can I open my eyes?

  • Which one is mine? Yeah!

  • So look, let me explain some things to this. You made this?!

  • Mommy did this for a long time! These are your drawers,

  • So you have this drawer and this drawer.

  • If you get more stuff than fills this drawer, than we get rid of it.

  • Nooh yes. We get rid of the stuff.

  • And this, it's a white board.

  • Are you kidding me?! You can put your pens right here.

  • Can you guys say "Thank you Mommy" and give her a big hug?

  • Ohhhh!! Christmas lunch/dinneryum!

  • Mommy made us something so yummy, huh?

  • Oh! This looks so good!

  • I'm going to get my plate now!

  • Go dude, go dude, go!

  • Go go go! Alright, good job.

  • We're playing some MarioKart while mommy is making her famous cinnamon rolls for the family to have breakfast tomorrow!

  • Oh my goodness! Is that real cinnamon rolls?

  • OK dude, let's do the last race, ok?

  • Uncle Paul's here!

  • Time to setup for the livestream.

  • T-minus one hour!

  • Uncle Paul's over here! We're getting the livestream all setup and ready to go,

  • And in just a little bit, we're going live!

  • Whew!

  • Normally we pack our place out with friends for Christmas, but that wasn't an option this year.

  • Instead of focusing on what we couldn't do, we opened up our family Christmas party to all of you via a livestream, and had our biggest house party ever!

  • Yeah! Welcome everybody! I can't believe that we're live with you right now!

  • Wow- good job girls!

  • Everyone's saying "great job" here!

  • We're changing around the whole scene scenario here... behind the scenes of livestream Life in Japan!

  • Change, change! Change, change, change!

  • I'm sweating! Oh!

  • [Christmas story in Japanese]

  • Well, that does it for now, and until next time, we'll see you on Life in Japan! Bye bye!

  • So our livestream is just ending right now,

  • What an incredible time, oh my goodness!

  • Our first livestream ever, I think we'll have to do this again...

  • And here iswe forgot to show the guy behind the scenes, making this all possible!

  • There's no way we could have done it without his help!

  • I think you can, next time!

  • Daddy, open this for me. Ok.

  • Good job, momma chan. What was your favorite part of the livestream?

  • Oh! Just seeing everyone comment, and having the family enjoying Christmas but with new friends.

  • Everybody munch munch munch munch munch.

  • Oh there we go. There we go!

  • You did it! Put it in the nest, honey!

  • Oh Sarah! Your guy's going to fly for the first time?!

  • He's going to fly?

  • No, he's doing the happy dance.

  • Awww!

  • We're trying to figure out how to make this guy fly!

  • But he won't fly! But he won't fly!

  • He's a little shy.

  • 2020 also taught us to appreciate the value of everyday moments and find joy in them.

  • What are you playing with? Hammer!

  • The hammer! How did you sleep last night?

  • Good. Good?

  • Oh that's so nice.

  • Cold is coming in here... The cold is coming in here?

  • Well you got to push right here and turn it on.

  • OK- now it's going to start heating up.

  • Oh! It's finally flying! Oh my goodness!

  • Oh my goodness! Ohhh!

  • Oh, it got sad. Crash landing!

  • It's ok- it's ok.

  • Yeah! The first flight!

  • It's called an owly or something...

  • Oh- where did you get a Mario hat?

  • He got it in therein his stocking.

  • You got it in your stocking! Cool.

  • It's going to go. It's going to go again.
