Why do Japanese eat KFC for Christmas? | A close look at Japan

"A Close Look at Japan" is a column set up by Chen Yaoshi, a writer living in Japan, in the interface news, telling about Japanese business and culture.
People in northern China eat jiaozi on the winter solstice, while Japanese eat KFC on Christmas. Trying to eat KFC on Christmas Eve is like trying to eat Haidilao at seven o’clock in the evening, because there are long queues at the gates of KFC, and no one has provided free tea, watermelon and manicure services.
However, even if you can’t get in line, there are ways. Many families will choose to go to the store or order a family bucket online to eat at home. After all, Christmas Eve should be spent with their families. Figures provided by the American fast food industry show that from December 20 to 25, 2018, KFC stores in Japan earned about 63 million US dollars, and Christmas Eve was a crazy night for KFC, with sales usually four or five times that of usual.
This phenomenon is a bit ridiculous. When I first spent Christmas in Japan, I was shocked by the long queue at the gate of KFC-KFC is called fast food for China people, and it is generally favored by couples of children and college students. Why did KFC become a Christmas dinner in Japan? Is it because the Japanese can’t afford to eat turkey and take KFC to deal with it?
In fact, it is not because the Japanese can’t afford to eat turkey, but because there is no turkey in Japan. In 1970, the first KFC in Japan opened, and the business was bleak. At that time, Japan’s economy had developed at a high speed, and KFC, which provided standardized and high-quality services, did not attract the attention of Japanese consumers.
But the Japanese like to celebrate Christmas. In the long time and space, this festival from the west has been widely accepted by the Japanese. In fact, the concept of Christmas spread to Japan during the Meiji Restoration. In 1892, Masaoka Shiki, a master of Japanese literature in Meiji period, wrote that "after Laba is a noisy Christmas". Just like what we said, "Don’t be greedy for children, it’s the year after Laba".
Although in the following years, whether Christmas should be celebrated has aroused widespread discussion in society, the theory of the opponents is very clear: Japan is not a Christian country, so why should it be celebrated? How should Japan’s own traditions be preserved?
However, Yanagita Kunio, the father of Japanese folklore, thinks that Christmas is just a traditional winter night activity in the East, covered with western pop elements … and the East has a tradition of celebrating the winter solstice night since ancient times. ….
It means that everyone is happy, so why be so serious? The Japanese people don’t care so much, and happiness is the most important thing. They soon enjoyed the fun of Christmas. Since around the 1910 s, Santa Claus, Christmas concerts and dances have come in droves, and major commercial organizations have tried their best to carry out various discounts and promotions. The whole December was immersed in a cheerful atmosphere.
Back to KFC. Before and after Christmas in 1974, KFC played a brainwashing slogan: "Of course, we must eat KFC at Christmas." I didn’t expect this strategy to be a great success.
It is said that this idea came to the manager of KFC in his dream at that time. After waking up, he quickly took a notebook and wrote it down. In addition to this slogan, he also suggested that KFC should launch Christmas package barrels during Christmas to attract consumers.
It is said that another reason is that several westerners living in Japan complained that they didn’t have a turkey dinner in Japan at Christmas, and the manager had a brainwave. So, buddy, come and have a KFC dinner. Anyway, it’s all chickens.
Since then, it has become a tradition to eat KFC in Japan for Christmas. In fact, there is commercial significance behind this. Although the Japanese have a long history of Christmas, they have not formed a unique culture, and what to eat at Christmas has always been a blank in the market. For example, it is a habit and custom to have a family reunion dinner and watch the Spring Festival Gala in China during the Spring Festival. But what to eat at Christmas, the Japanese have never had a fixed habit. Until KFC’s marketing strategy changed this situation.
Moreover, KFC in Japan later strengthened its Christmas significance. They said that KFC’s grandfather looked like Santa Claus … So more Japanese chose to see this KFC grandfather who looked like Santa Claus at Christmas.
Besides eating KFC, if you happen to be in Tokyo, it is definitely a big loss not to see the brightly lit city on Christmas Eve. Whether it is a commercial block or a small park, this day will be shrouded in gorgeous lights containing whimsy and creativity. The images of reindeer, Christmas tree and Santa Claus will be displayed in various forms, and the trees on the roadside will also be lit by various colors of lights.
A few years ago, on Christmas Eve, I walked alone in Marunouchi Street in Tokyo, and was deeply moved by the romance at night. It is said that more than 200 trees on this 1.2-kilometer-long road are lit with shining lights, and there are about 930,000 light bulbs here to illuminate my Little Paradise.
In fact, we don’t have to be too critical of the festivals that emerge from time to time today. The background of their existence may be the planning of businesses, such as shopping, eating and having fun. But what about this? The important thing is, if real life makes you feel bored, what’s wrong with having fun in a festive atmosphere?

  Academicians and experts offer suggestions and suggestions around talent construction.

  "At present, the construction of a modern new Chongqing is in a critical period, which requires the active participation of talents and strong intellectual support." Yuan Jiajun, secretary of the Chongqing Municipal Party Committee, said in his speech at the opening ceremony, "We have vigorously implemented the strategy of scientific and technological innovation and strengthening the city with talents, cultivated and introduced all kinds of talents in an all-round way, and accelerated the construction of the western talent center and innovative highland."

  Up to now, Chongqing’s total talent resources exceed 6.3 million people, and its talent density ranks first in the west. There are 105 national science and technology innovation platforms, and 69 disciplines have entered the top 1% of ESI (Basic Scientific Indicators Database) in the world.

  What kind of talents are needed in the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation, and how to cultivate and gather talents?

  "The major technological infrastructure is ‘ The heavy weapon of the country ’ It has the unique advantages of cultivating, condensing talents and promoting international scientific and technological cooperation. " Bai Chunli, an academician of the China Academy of Sciences, said that he made a statistic and found that 30 of the Nobel Prize in Physics since 1951 were obviously related to major scientific and technological infrastructure, accounting for 48% of the prize-winning proportion. The major scientific and technological infrastructure is also an important platform for international scientific and technological cooperation and the implementation of international science plans. At present, China is in a critical period of accelerating the realization of high-level scientific and technological self-reliance and building a world-class scientific and technological power, and talents are the first resource.

  Bai Chunli said: "We must give full play to the unique role of the cradle of major scientific and technological infrastructure talents, so that these high-level scientific research platforms can continuously feed back the cultivation of talents and continuously improve the independent training ability of basic research talents."

  "Since the reform and opening up, the overall development trend and scale of talents in China are very good. The problem we are facing now is that there are many general talents and many strong talents, but the more we go up, the less top talents there are. " Shi Yigong, academician of China Academy of Sciences and president of West Lake University, put forward three suggestions on how to maintain the leading position of top talents. The first is long-term trust and stable support; Secondly, attach importance to young talents and support young people; Third, open cooperation, diversification will bring innovation drive.

  "I chose to join Changan Automobile because Changan Automobile has strong scientific and technological innovation. I chose to come to Chongqing Liangjiang New District because it has a solid industrial base, a vast market space and a high degree of openness. " Klaus Chijola, vice president of Chongqing Changan Automobile Company, mentioned the reason why he became attached to Chongqing in his keynote speech. He introduced that with the increasing globalization trend, Changan Design Center, as an important part of Changan Automobile, has formed an international professional layout. At the same time, Changan Automobile continuously integrates excellent human resources, promotes excellent product design, and strives to build a new global strategic partnership.

  Promote the talent chain and empower the industrial chain.

  This year, Chongqing proposed to build the strategic layout of "416" scientific and technological innovation and the construction of "33618" modern manufacturing cluster system, closely following the layout of talent chains in key industrial chains, and Chongqing played a "combination boxing" to attract outstanding talents to innovate and start businesses in Chongqing.

  At the opening ceremony, Chongqing’s scientific and technological research project "Revealing the List" was released, with a total of 28 projects covering intelligent networked new energy vehicles, advanced materials, intelligent equipment and other fields, with a list amount of 221 million yuan. Highlight the needs of the industry and the ability of innovation, and set up a high-level research team by giving play to the role of leading talents as "head geese" to concentrate on collaborative research.

  "Chongqing’s good talent base and scientific research advantages are important reasons for attracting our team to participate in this competition." Liang Feng, the winner of the "Xingyu Cup" International Innovation and Entrepreneurship Project Competition, "Research and Development of Multi-gene Combination Therapy for Anti-tumor and Anti-vaccine Based on MRNA Platform", said that he was going to set the research and development and manufacturing center of anti-tumor vaccine project in Chongqing. In this competition, a total of 1,369 outstanding talents competed with innovative and entrepreneurial projects, and 1,069 household units launched 19,000 positions to attract talents.

  At the closing ceremony, talents and projects were introduced for centralized signing cooperation. Of the 2,954 talents introduced by this year’s conference, 1,637 were involved in the "33,618" modern manufacturing cluster system, accounting for 55.42%; Among the 206 imported projects, the top three imported projects are manufacturing, information transmission, software and information technology services, scientific research and technical services.

  This time, a series of policies, such as the digital platform for talent work in Chongqing, the new Chongqing talent loan and the new Chongqing talent insurance, were released to facilitate the development of talents.

  In the next step, Chongqing will further implement the strategy of scientific and technological innovation and strengthening the city with talents, improve the overall intelligence, talent concentration, strategic support, policy competitiveness and ecological conservation in an all-round way, and build a platform and create opportunities for all kinds of talents.

At least Luneng has done it and persisted for so many years, which is worthy of recognition! "
