KFC for Christmas...

I'm a teacher and I assigned my students the task of researching a Christmas tradition in a country where they had ancestors. One of my students with Japanese Heritage shared this:

The celebration of Christmas in Asia usually involves imported western traditions, but in Japan those traditions have been shaped by commercial interests. The holiday places special emphasis on romantic love, so it’s a day to spend with a sweetheart or spouse. Bakeries sell Christmas cakes as traditional sweetheart treats. And you might have to make reservations to get a table at KFC. Yes, Kentucky Fried Chicken. The fast food franchise let it be known that fried chicken is traditional for the Christmas feast. And so it is -in Japan. (Image by Flickr user sleepytako.)

If you visit YouTube and search for KFC Japan Christmas you'll see special commericals about it.

I'm thinking we might do KFC on Dec. 26!

Even before we became vegetarians, we boycotted KFC.  The way they treat those chickens is TERRIBLE.
