In Japan, people associate Kentucky Fried Chicken with Christmas.
This Christmas season, tens of thousands of Japanese will join together with loved ones for a festive meal, not of turkey, not of ham, but of Kentucky Fried Chicken, the popular American fast food brand. Dozens of people line up in the winter chill alongside the statue of KFC's founder, Colonel Harland Sanders.
Fried chicken was very unpopular in Japan when KFC first came more than 30 years ago. So they made to market it as a special treat, especially at Christmas. The promotion turned from a wild success into a tradition.
There're not many baptized Christians in Japan, but many people engage in festive activities on Christmas Eve. A lot of Japanese people really really love to party and festival, because a lot of Japanese people are a thirsty mortal. lol.
Of course, I also ate KFC and Christmas cake, drunk a lot with my hubby and friends. Hahaha.
