“I’m waiting for a christmas gift, I want to get a spaceship…”

We’re super busy with baking, wrapping and parties this weekend. Such fun, the build-up to Chrismas is often just as good as the big day.

The penultimate advent post is from Shonen Knife, an indie Japanese girl trio who always bring a smile to my face. Here they are with “Space Christmas”
