Japan has started festive season celebrations early this year by lighting up the whole nation like a Christmas tree in November.

The entire nation, including small towns with populations under 20 people, has been illuminated for an event that is still over five weeks away.

Japan says it will put its environmentally conscious society on hold for the next month-and-a-half in support of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

“Japan wa suki desu,” Colonel Sanders told reporters in response to extensive illuminations.

Reporters didn’t tell the Colonel he should have used ‘ga’ instead of ‘wa’.
