Do you know what most people in Japan do for Christmas Eve? Christmas Eve is mainly for couples to spend time with each other and eat cake… That is it. Christmas in Japan is not the same as Christmas in America. It’s considered very romantic to eat cake on Christmas Eve. That means I need to find a cake tonight. Not an ordinary cake, it has to be called a “Christmas Cake (クリスマスケーキ)”, which every bakery in Japan sells.
