AOLからも、メリークリスマス!


(getty)

というわけで、いよいよクリスマスです。
みなさんはもう予定は決まっているのでしょうか? 家族と過ごす、友達と過ごす、恋人と過ごす......。(日本ではカップルたちであふれてるのが定番ですが......)などなど。イベントがある人もない人も、週末は特に寒いようですので、身体を冷やさないようにしてお過ごしくださいね。筆者は寒がりなので、天気予報には敏感だったりするのです。冬だから寒いに決まってるでしょ、なんて怒られてしまいそうですが。

さてさて、今週はといえば、やはり、金正日総書記が亡くなったことはニュースとして欠かせません。このニュースは、世界をかけめぐり、多くの人を驚かせました。今後の北朝鮮がどうなっていくかも気をつけて見守っていかねばならぬところです。それにしても金正男氏といい、金正恩氏といい、ディズニーに来るために訪日してたという話がでてくるのも驚きです。確かに楽しいとは思うのですが、何故ディズニーなんでしょうね。

あとは神戸のルミナリエ、ロンドンのパレード、それからパリのクリスマスイルミネーション。この3つのギャラリーもご用意しました。以前ご紹介したものもありますが、クリスマスにあわせたギャラリーを楽しんでくだされば幸いです。

さて、来週頑張ってしまえばいよいよ2012年になってしまいます。早いものですね。
今年も残り一週間ちょっととなってしまいますが、2011年も最後まで大事に過ごせればと思います。


あ、年賀状まだ書いてない。
