Do you ever go to the January sales? Most shops have sales after Christmas. They used to start in January, but now they start earlier. Some sales start before Christmas, some start on Christmas Day and some start the day after.

When I was a child, the sales usually started in January, so we called them January sales. I always looked forward to the January sales. I often got money for Christmas from relatives. I spent the money in the sales in January. I usually bought books or music.

Now, I go to the sales on December 26th or 27th. The shops are packed with people searching for bargains. I usually buy clothes now. I don’t go clothes shopping in Japan, so I buy my clothes in the UK. The sale season is the perfect time for me to go shopping. I can only buy a few items though, because if I buy many clothes, they don’t fit into my suitcase! One year, I bought too many clothes, and I had to send them to Japan by airmail, because I couldn’t carry them! Since then, I’m always careful not to buy too much.
