‘Tis the season for Chinese food.
Tradition has it that Jews eat Chinese food on Christmas (and go to the movies). Why? Because they’re typically the only places that are open. But Chinese food orders on Christmas go way beyond America’s Jewish population.
GrubHub ( says Chinese food is 152% more popular on Christmas Day than it is throughout the rest of the year. In fact, three of the top five days of the year to order Chinese food are Christmas, Christmas Eve and New Year’s Day, followed by “smoking holiday” (4/20) and Labor Day. )
By far the most popular item for Chinese food orders is General Tso’s Chicken. According to GrubHub — which features roughly 30,000 restaurants on its site across more than 800 cities in the U.S. — it’s actually the 4th most popular dish on the site, all year-round.
The top 10 Chinese food orders. according to GrubHub are:
- General Tso’s chicken
- Crab Rangoon (not for the Kosher among us)
- Egg Rolls
- Sesame Chicken
- Wonton Soup
- Fried Rice
- Sweet & Sour Chicken
- Orange Chicken
- Hot and Sour Soup
- Pot Stickers
Jews have had a long love affair with Chinese food. Other types of food, including Italian and Mexican cuisines, tend to mix dairy and meat in single dishes and are thereby not kosher. Chinese food typically does not include dairy. Before the food industry began making and labeling kosher products, Chinese food was as close to kosher food that many Jewish immigrants were able to find, reports the Atlantic.
It’s one ritual that doesn’t seem to be going away anytime soon.
