Merry KFC-mas

Dear readers, The Durango Telegraph will not be publishing next Thurs., Dec. 30.

We know what you’re thinking: “What?” Or maybe: “You guys publish every week?”

Well, it’s true; we’re taking the week off. We’re not going to sugarcoat it and say it’s because we want to “spend more time with our family” or we need a little “me time.” And yeah, sure, our week off coincides with the biggest predicted snowpacolypse of the winter so far, but that has nothing to do with it, at all.

Turns out, we’re going to witness a once-in-a-lifetime event: Kentucky Fried Christmas in Japan.

Oh yes, for the past four decades, KFC has become synonymous with Christmas in Japan, a tradition passed down through the generations. It’s estimated more than 240,000 barrels of chicken will be sold, which is disgusting. But who are we to judge other cultures?

Anyway, we’ll be back Jan. 6. And to all people who steal Telegraphs for fire starter, we’re not sorry.

Happy holidays.

Durango's 11

Put this in the strange crime file. Over the holiday weekend, two people suspected of breaking into and living in a closed downtown Durango motel came up with rather bold explanations when caught by cops: not only were they authorized to live there, they worked there as well.
