The „KFC Turkey“

Thanks to a very successful marketing campaign in 1974, KFC, yes, Kentucky Fried Chicken, has become THE traditional Japanese Christmas dinner.

The KFC Christmas dinner is so popular in Japan that people order their buckets (the large container in which KFC is served) many weeks in advance.

Even with the pre-order service available, many Japanese spend hours waiting in line (queuing) for their special Christmas treat.
