Santa doing magic ・ サンタがマジックをやっている


In Japan, people do not really celebrate Christmas. It is however a day when traditionally couples go to some fancy restaurant, or at least you have to go on a date. I was in our magic bar the whole evening (actually every day from December 22 to 25; 23rd is a holiday (the emperor's birthday) and 25th we were open despite it being a Sunday just because quite a few couples wanted to come) but I do not have anyone to date anyway, so that was OK.

日本でクリスマスは特に何もやらないよね。デートに行く習慣はちょっとあるみたいだけど。僕はマジックバーで、木・金・土・日曜日に毎日出ていた(普段日曜日やっていないがクリスマスだからカップル来るかなと思われて、やっていた)。デートしてくれる相手がいないので、出勤でも問題なかったね、笑。

The other two magicians both did their magic dressed as Santas. No pockets meant it was difficult to bring your stuff with you to the tables etc., and the suits were very hot.

We also had another couple where the guy proposed to his girlfriend in our magic bar. This time too, the girl said yes. A very cute couple.

他のマジシャン2人がサンタのコスプレでマジックをやっていた。ポケットがなくて、ものをテーブルに持っていくのが面倒だったそうだし、暑かったらしいし、僕は普通の服で良かった。

又マジックバーでプロポーズがあったんだ。今回もうまく行った。可愛いカップルだった。
