Would you make a Christmas Cake feel like a real woman once again
for the first time in 2016?
I want to eat all the cakes.
You'd better follow that up with tender loving and cuddles. Cakes are sensitive and in desperate need of love.
>in desperate need of love.
So am I.
>Is this just a meme or do Japanese really find unmarried women over 25 undesirable?
To my knowledge the Christmas Cake phenomenon is dying out and being replaced by New Years Noodles (Christmas Cake, but 31 instead of 25). That more matches the Western perception of a woman being undatable after 31.
It's a half-serious joke thing. Sort of like young adult males have half a dozen derogatory terms associated with their age group, christmas cake is just another way of calling attention to the fact that a person has entered or progressed through adulthood without fulfilling the social obligations expected of adults, like starting your own independent, financially secure life and starting a family.
The 'christmas cake' is a whip in the same way that a 'freeter' is.
