It was the turn of Shibuya school (along with Shinjuku and Ikebukuro) to host its Christmas Party on Saturday night at ‘The Rose & Crown’ British Bar. This was a much bigger affair than the one two weeks ago in terms of numbers; 110 students, about 20 teachers and three hours duration.
My rather piss-poor cheap alter-ego Father Christmas made his first appearance during the day for a kids lesson (see first photo) and and he made a short guest appearance at the party too in one of many lowlights of the party! Although I had quite a good time chatting with my five students for most of the night a lot of things didn’t go quite to plan.
Unlike what we thought, we didn’t have the whole pub exclusively for our party, the food was very limited, there was no warning of last orders for the drinks and the microphone wasn’t loud enough for the large amount of students to hear the instructions or rules for the games. Personally, I didn’t really ever get in a really jolly festive mood for whatever reason and despite drinking till gone 5am at the after-show party i still never got too drunk.
