Just found out that the candy bar, KitKat, is very popular in Japan, partly because its Japanese name, Kitto Katto is similar to a good luck phrase. “Kitto Katsu” means, “You Surely Will Win!”
Around exam time, Japanese students buy KitKat bars for good luck.
I think I’d like to start a trend to make my cat, named KitKat, Big in Japan. Do-meow arigatou! 😺

The origin of the name KitKat comes from WW 2 Germany. It was a nightclub with bawdy vaudeville acts. It was a favorite hang out for Nazi soldiers. You may remember it from “Caberet.”
I didn’t know that, Mimi. That’s interesting. It shouldn’t surprise me, though – I often end up doing a dance I call “the sugar shakes” when I eat too many KitKats!
