We Won. Let's Eat! The Jewish Food Pod
25 minutes | a year ago
We're joined for an interview with Alene Sussman of the Chewish Blog (https://chewishblog.wordpress.com/) to talk about Jewish Christmas, aka Chinese food and a movie. Alene talks about the trends and history of this tradition, and some parallels between Jewish and Chinese cultures, which she also wrote about here https://tcjewfolk.com/andrew-zimmerns-controversy-is-our-opportunity/. Resources: https://www.myjewishlearning.com/the-nosher/why-do-jews-eat-chinese-food-on-christmas/Data backing this up: Google Trends data lends some insight, showing that searches for “Chinese food” spike on Christmas compared to any other day of the year. Related phrases like “Chinese restaurant,” or adding “open” or “near me” saw a similar spike. On Yelp, the same pattern emerged: For the past six years, page views for Chinese restaurants peaked on December 25th, all more than doubling their usual share.
