Christmas Comes But Once A Year, Sometimes Early...


My, how the year passes so quickly...

It seems like it was yesterday that 2008 began and now Halloween is upon us. Before you know it, Thanksgiving will be here and then the beauty that is Christmas will greet us... My favorite time of the year, btw.

We've always noticed how stores tend to put X-Mas decorations and promotions out earlier and earlier each year... Well, Disney is no different. Actually, Tokyo Disney, to be specific.

The website for the Christmas events at the Tokyo Disney Resort are already up and active. If you've never been, the events are wonderfully entertaining and pure Disney, from TDL's "Christmas Fantasy" to TDS's "Harborside Christmas." And we can't forget Ikspiari's "Pure White Christmas" as well.

Also, if you're interested, the Hong Kong Disneyland website has it's Christmas Holiday Page up as well.

Christmas may come but once a year, but Disney magic around the world lets you experience it many times and in many ways...

Actually, I don't know why we Americans are so surprised about Christmas coming early in other parts of the world. HELLO, they don't celebrate Thanksgiving anywhere but the U.S. In the Philippines, my native country, they celebrate it from the end of Halloween all the way to January. I for one love the fact that in other countries Christmas comes early.

Respectfully, Thanksgiving is celebrated in the U.S. and Canada (it is also celebrated in Grenada, but for different reasons than North America). Thanksgiving is a special American holiday the same way that Ninoy Aquino Day is special to the Philippines. I do not think that Honor was suprised Christmas is coming early to Disney.

Not only the Asian parks have their Christmas sites up early: Disneyland Resort Paris had it already up in early October:

Nice little multilingual mini-sites, only with a somewhat irritating child voice-over.

The Halloween mini-site is also still up:
