too thick!

As you might know, the first day of January is a special day for most people in Japan. This day's newspaper has much articles than usual. This year's Asahi includes a guide about special TV programs, sports, a historical place in Japan, learning, and literature. It is three times as thick as normal.

The first day is the most busiest one for newspaper delivers, I think.

I didn't know that the first newspaper of the new year was thicker than normal, but it makes sense, I suppose.

I picked the newspaper yesterday at the hotel and thought "It´s really thick today".
Didn´t know the reason, thanks for telling.^_^
Happy New Year

To Jon-san,
I have forgotten one thing about the first day's newspaper. Usually, it is delivered with a lot of commercial papers.

To Susana-san,
Thank you for posting your comment and I am always enjoying your blog.
