| "Japan and KFC in Christmas" , posted Mon 18 Jul 21:56:
Hi there. For as long as I've been using the internet, the MMCafe has been one of the best ways for me to learn about Japanese culture in terms of gaming and in general. So I would like to
exploit inquire the cafe's experts for monetary academic gain. Currently, I'm writing an essay for a World Cultures college course about the Subject of Japan's "Kentukki" Christmas dinner, mainly in how it is accepting another culture's tradition yet at the same time doing its own "spin" on it. And here's some of what I found about it:
- It seems to have started in the 70s when a foreigner bought KFC for dinner on Christmas eve cause he thought that fried chicken is the 2nd best thing to roast turkey. And the manager reported that to the higher ups, leading to KFC's very successful marketing campaign.
- Most of Japan don't like the taste of turkey meat. And the bird itself is rare, and thus expensive. Also, most of Japanese kitchens are void of ovens to roast turkey because traditional Japanese cuisine doesn't require baking.
- And of course, the most obvious reason.
If you have ideas about the subject please post them. Thanks for the help. Due credit will be given if I get to use any of your information.
 Thank you Prof. for the help.
