Christmas in Japan
Christmas has been celebrated in Japan for the last few decades. In Japan they spread more happiness more than religious, they focus more on Christmas eve than they do on Christmas day. On Christmas they are known for eating fried chicken and for the Christmas desert they are known for having “Christmas cake” it is not a rich cake. It is pretty much a strawberry short cake (sponge cake with strawberries and whip cream. The children all go to school on the 25th and all the businesses are open because to them it is not all that important. Christmas eve is known as more of a romantic day. They also have turkey for their christmas dinner. However the Christmas traditions of Japan for the Japanese Christians is spent for worship and charity for the poor and sick. For New Years they all clean their houses and their family’s come over and they go around the houses and drive evil spirits out. Most of the presents are small “cute” things such as teddy’s bears and chocolate. They compare it to Valentine's day pretty much because it is all lovey.
