#504 Christmas Dating

In Japan, Christmas celebrations are getting bigger and bigger every year.

It’s focused on couples and dating and family dinners with cake and KFC.

Just check out Family Mart‘s front page:

The illuminations are a popular date on Christmas Eve.

As well as exchaging gifts, and kind of big ones, like jewelry.

(Giving a present on Christmas day is only really popular with little kids)

Then of course, after exchaging gifts and going for a stroll in the lit streets, you have to pick up your pre-booked fried chicken bucket and munch away with Netflix (which came to Japan only a few months ago).
