They do the same things as the U.S. They decorate their homes with lights and sing songs with the family.
• The most popular food that familys eat Kentucky fried chicken..yes KFC. They made an advertisement saying that’s what western people eat for Christmas dinner. The Fathers pick up Christmas cake to bring to their familys
Its almost the exact same as how we decorate in the U.S. Just more Japanesestyle of ornaments
They have people dress up as Santa at malls like we do at the U.S. But their own version is a Buddhist monk named Hotei-Osho. He sneaks into children’s windows and leaves only one present under their pillow.
Gift giving is the main one. But Japanese tend to be treated as a valentines day by teenagers. This time of year is the best time for a man or woman to confess their feelings towards someone. Also a best time to go on a date due to the amazing lights they put up.
Due to Japan having less than 1% being Christian they do not practice any of the religion behind Christmas. They only celebrate it because it is a extremely fun holiday to participate in.
They do have our songs translated to Japanese. Also artists create and sing their own songs for the holidays.
