Damien on… Christmas In Japan

Less than one percent of Japanese people are Christian (most, if they ARE religious, are Buddhist or Shinto) and Christmas has only been acknowledged there since the American occupation, in 1945.

This has led to some bizarre events – like KFC putting up posters featuring their cross-eyed Colonel in Coca-Cola Santa garb.

And the TV company who screened “Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence” as the Christmas movie.

But the best HAS to be the entrepreneur who decided to “mash-up” TWO myths – by nailing Santa Claus to a cross!
