VIDEO| Speakin’ Japanese lesson: Christmas is just around the corner!

Christmas is just around the corner. Did you prepare Christmas gifts for your family or friends? Enjoy this joyful and heartwarming season with your loved ones!

Today's Japanese phrase is: “Mosugu kurismas desu!" = Christmas is just around the corner! ("mosugu" = soon / around the corner, "kurismas"= Christmas, ".. desu" = it is../they are..)

You can also say... "Mosugu oshogatsu desu!" = New Year is just around the corner! ("oshogatsu" = New Year's celebration)

Stay safe and I wish you a Merry Christmas!
