Brit Runs Around Tokyo Dressed As Christmas Tree: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A British man based in Tokyo is spreading Christmas cheer in a very unique way.

Joseph Tame, who runs a small video production and digital media business, is dressing up as a Christmas tree -- equipped with lights and decorations -- and running through the streets of Japan`s capital.

"There are many areas of the city that are beautifully illuminated with Christmas decorations, but there are also areas where there are not, so I thought wouldn`t it be great to take the fun and wonder of these illuminations into those areas and spread the Christmas cheer," he tells CNN."

A Brit is on a mission from God to spread Christmas cheer in Tokyo by running around town dressed as a Christmas tree.

Joseph Tame is an antidote to the Bah Humbug spirit that seems to be endemic this holiday season.

Come on my fellow Americans don`t let a Brit show us up, it`s our moral imperative to spread Christmas cheer.

Normally I`m cynical and grouchy, but at this special time of the year it`s all about kissing under the mistletoe and greeting strangers with a hug and a smile.

Merry Christmas everybody!
