Christmas wasn't kind to Rudolph

I was a bit taken aback to see a Christmas display in Ikebukuro station with a taxidermic reindeer....  I'm a hypocrite - I'll happily eat a stuffed chicken  - but a stuffed Rudolph... it just doesn't seem quite right...

Another quake

Another quake in a very similar location. At 7.3M it's a lot smaller, but things still shook a lot here.  A tsunami warning has been issued. May it turn out to be minor and that there are enough blankets on hand to keep people warm.  It's a very cold night, but thankfully no rain or snow.
