So, this is Christmas…

How is this for weird and wonderful Christmas marketing?

The traditional Christmas dinner for the Japanese is Kentucky Fried Chicken. Yes, you read right! It began 40 years ago, when the fast food chain successfully convinced customers with an advertising campaign that fried chicken is the traditional American feast. It is so popular and well-marketed that reservations have to be made long in advance and the chicken is served in special holiday packaging.

Talk about selling ice to Eskimos!

Believe it or not, but every Christmas morning we pack cold Kentucky Fried Chicken, warm bread rolls, freshly cut fruit, juice and Champagne and head to Alex for a surf and picnic breakfast with friends and family before we all head back for traditional turkey and present opening. This tradition has been going for 27 years in our family. What have you planned?
