chinese food on christmas?
Is it popular? Or just in the states?
I've been in London for Christmas and there are certainly a few places in Chinatown to get food. The tube and public transport are down (or heavily restricted) so getting there can be a pain with a car.
That said, I wouldn't say it is a tradition at all as it is in the states (esp. amongst those that don't celebrate christmas).
Not as popular as "Indian". All three restaurants in the village are open today and seemed to be doing good business when I drove past. I presume that if places are open here in the suburbs then more will be open in the city.
