Believe it or not, one of the most cherished culinary Christmas traditions in Japan is… KFC chicken. Every year, an estimated 3.6 million Japanese families treat themselves to a bucket of fried chicken to celebrate the holidays. This modern tradition dates back to the early 1970s, when Takeshi Okawara, manager of Japan’s first KFC, came up with the idea of promoting fried chicken as a holiday dish. The Japanese, who had no established Christmas tradition, loved the idea and adopted it immediately.
