You know Christmas is coming....

...when the Colonel gets his Santa suit on.

Kentucky Fried Chicken outlets across Japan have a statue of Colonel Saunders outside, and during the festive season he does double duty as Father Christmas.

KFC has become the standard Christmas food in Japan. They are taking orders now, for particular time slots throughout Christmas week. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day the road in front of KFC is always clogged up with cars waiting to go through the drive-through and collect their orders. I suppose it's the closest most people can get to a roast chicken, let alone turkey...

I, on the other hand, have just ordered two turkeys online; a little one for Christmas Day itself, and a bigger one for the annual Monkey Household Potluck Christmas Party. Consider yourself invited!
