How do you celebrate Christmas in Japan? Everyone like they want since there is no real tradition established?

Do you eat together at the 24th evening? When get presents unpacked by the kids?

Here in south Germany, we eat together after going to Church. I skip that, my skin burns inside there. Then we do the dishes and then the door to the living room is opened. We sing "oh du fröhliche" in front of the tree and then the kids can unwrap their presents.

Then cookies and beverages. Kids go to bed and then many adults from town will meet at the church to grab some hot Glühwein and have a good time together.

But not this year, I am alone at the 24th evening, my daughter is at her fathers place and so it is going to be scotch and pizza. Yey.




In Japan, most people order the Christmas cake for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. Yes, we open presents under the tree. It's becoming more popular, but money usually is given to children , but starting in 7th grade, well... they no longer get money.
The Christmas cake is very big business here. Kind of like everyone Stateside buying a Christmas tree. I guess if you google Japanese Christmas cake, that will give you an idea.
The cakes on average run about 32 to 36 USD. Smaller cake are about 18 bucks. We eat ice cream with the cake, but I don't think the typical Japanese would even consider it.
Thanks for asking. I have friends in Germany and they have sent us some German chocolate, that stuff is soo good.


I read somewhere (aka the internet
that KFC is typically served at Christmas dinner. Or is that during Thanksgiving?

Oh Oleandra, never heard of Christmas cake? My wife makes half a dozen every year about the beginning of November. They have to mellow and be fed with brandy every day. Then ice them or not your choice.
MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR to everybody.

Haha no never! I never counted but it must be thousands of cakes I baked. Layered, motive, 3D, normal, cakes made out of pralines that are made out of smaller pralines..but not one christmas cake ever


I identified the Japan Christmas Cakes are made similar to what we call mole cake. Not exactly the same but similar. Then I googled the German translation of Christmas Cakes and it came back with normal cakes, muffins and stuff but not the Japan ones.

Hello Lags,

I am neither young nor American, but if you consider street smarts as "education", then I am a scholar

Merry Christmas to you as well, I guess?

What a nice groove they got in with that odd melody. "Your Own Personal Jesus", had some soul. Never seen that many, about 100 of each musician, drummer, guitar and singers.

Love the song there are sooo many covers of it, All the way back to Johnny Cash, nice covers from Hagar, Marilyn Manson Def Leppard and of course Depeche Mode but there's something about this version. Plus thought the subject matter was apropos.



Check out Rockin 1000 they got some great covers too

KFC does have a Christmas pack, but the Christmas cake is more Japanese tradition.

Yaki curry is best. You should learn how to cook it . So good. Just use 3 types of cheeses.
