12月 December in Kanbayashi

We are experiencing  dantou 暖冬 (だんとう), a mild winter, the consequence of el nino elsewhere in the pacific region. The narcissi are blooming, kids are playing outside in t-shirts; it should be snowing by now. While we  appreciate the mild temperature it doesn’t feel quite right, especially when putting out New Year decorations.
