Happy Holidays, From Anime Herald

Today’s a day in which countless come together, be it for spiritual worship, for quality family time, or even the simple exchange of gifts. Each year, we cross borders, physical and otherwise, to share the day with those we care about the very most.

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hannukah, Yule, or just plain Sunday, I want to wish you the very happiest of holidays. May you find the greatest of joys today, with those you care about the most.

For this year’s musical choice, we’ve chosen to present Christmas Is A Part Time Job, from digital diva Hatsune Miku.

Happy Holidays, everybody! Thank you for your years of support. We’ll continue doing our very best to ensure that the next year is full of pleasant surprises.
