Christmas has had a long tradition in Shanghai and Christmas diner and celebration were many in Old Shanghai. Along with the celebration, came printed menus and cards. Below is a Christmas Eve menu from Park Hotel.
The menu below quite similar to today’s Christmas menu. Although under restriction from the war, in Shanghai the party was going for Christmas.
I am not sure who attended Christmas diner at the Park Hotel in 1944. As Shanghai was occupied and most allied nations citizens were interned in camps, it was probably a bunch of Japanese militaries as well as the collaborators that Park Hotel was famous for at that time.
