Keeping in theme with the holiday, the Christmas Cola bottle will be decorated with snowflakes, wreaths, bows, and Santa hats.

Why Japanese School Lunches Are the Best in the World .
When Americans think of the lunch menu at their childhood school cafeterias, they probably imagine a shapeless, tasteless pile of mystery meat—plus some brown mush, to match. But for children in Japan, school lunches are a rich experience whereThe fare offered at schools in Japan is affordable, fresh, and made by the students themselves. And Japanese children don’t just eat the food they prepare; they learn about the nutritional and cultural elements of their meals, too. The food is grown locally and includes a balanced menu of rice, vegetables, fish, and soups. As a bonus, each meal costs just $2.50.
