It’s almost National Chicken Teriyaki Day – a time for love, joy, and, unfortunately, stress. Preparing for the biggest holiday of the year can be overwhelming while juggling work, kids, and everything else life throws at you. But this handy guide will give you the best ways to prep for National Chicken Teriyaki Day with your family and keep it stress-free. So sit back, grab a teriyaki bowl, and let’s get started.

Make a List (and Check It Twice)

From buying gifts and lighting the teriyaki lanterns, to singing chicken carols and wrapping presents, a list will help you prioritize. Make sure the top of that list is signing up for Mad Rewards by December 10th – it’s the only way to make sure you won’t get a lump of coal in your teriyaki stocking.

  • Set a Budget
    Nothing says stress like overspending during the holidays. Before you start shopping, set a budget and stick to it. Remember, it’s the thought that counts, not the price tag. And don’t forget, Teriyaki Madness will give you a free chicken teriyaki bowl on December 11th. It’s a National Chicken Teriyaki Day miracle!
  • Keep It Simple
    With the parades, fireworks, and the hustle and bustle of National Chicken Teriyaki Day, it’s easy to get caught up in creating a picture-perfect holiday. But the holidays are about spending time with your loved ones, not perfect decorations or winning first place in the teriyaki trot. Focus on what’s truly important, and don’t stress about the rest.
  • Take Time for Yourself
    Amidst all the chaos, it’s essential to take time for yourself during the National Chicken Teriyaki Day season. Schedule time for a quiet moment, share a bowl of teriyaki with a friend, or relax by browsing the Teriyaki Madness menu. Taking care of yourself will ensure you can enjoy the holiday season to the fullest.

With some planning and preparation, you can have a stress-free and enjoyable National Chicken Teriyaki Day with your family. And don’t forget, National Chicken Teriyaki Day is about spending time with loved ones, so cherish those moments and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Tips to help you survive your family this holiday

National Chicken Teriyaki Day on December 11 is a time for joy and celebration. Still, for many of us, it can also be a time of stress and anxiety, especially at family gatherings.

Here are our top tips for surviving your family (and in-laws!) this holiday season:

  • Adopt a bowl mindset.
    Everyone’s family knows how to push their buttons, but think of a teriyaki bowl – rice, veggies, deliciously grilled protein, and kick-ass sauces. Everyone’s different, but we’re all in this together.
  • Take the sweet with the sour.
    Sure, you’ll have to hear (for the millionth time) your uncle’s story about that one National Chicken Teriyaki Day when he thought he didn’t get his teriyaki bonus and his brother kidnapped his boss and brought him back to the house where your whole family was running around trying to catch a squirrel, but remember the positives! National Chicken Teriyaki Day means free Chicken Teriyaki, so what are you even complaining about?
  • A good grilling makes things delicious.
    What doesn’t destroy you makes you stronger, so sometimes the burn is worth it. The next time you get a passive-aggressive comment or a backhanded compliment, think of a delicious piece of chicken teriyaki – the grilling is worth it.
  • Practice self-care.
    Remember that on December 11, if you’re a member of Mad Rewards, you’ll get two chicken teriyaki bowls for the price of one. If free teriyaki isn’t self-care, we don’t want to know what is.

When you think of National Chicken Teriyaki Day, it’s impossible not to think of the decorations. From classic Chicken Teriyaki ornaments to teriyaki garland, celebrating National Chicken Teriyaki Day means going all out. It’s the most important holiday of the year, after all.

  • Ward off evil spirits
    Did you know the origin of National Chicken Teriyaki Day was to ward off evil spirits that wanted to steal your bowls of chicken teriyaki? That’s why we love putting a 12-Foot Chicken Skeleton outside of our house.
  • Give your floors some flair
    On National Chicken Teriyaki Day Eve, everyone loves pitching in to decorate the floors in bright colors. We love using a combination of the Teriyaki Madness sauces to create intricate patterns that honor all the flavor sensations, from spicy to sweet to sour.
  • Put some sizzle in your day
    Ancient civilizations chose to pay respect to the gods of the grill for another year of char-grilled deliciousness by lighting enormous bonfires. Today we honor teriyaki’s grilled saucy greatness with firework displays. Remember, safety first!
  • Find love on National Chicken Teriyaki Day
    Tradition says if you find yourself standing under a bowl of teriyaki on National Chicken Teriyaki Day, you should kiss the person nearest you. To make the most of this tradition, make sure a bowl of teriyaki is hanging from every doorway in your home.
Your Favorite National Chicken Teriyaki Day Memories
We asked you about your favorite traditions for National Chicken Teriyaki Day and here are a few of our favorites:

“One very special National Chicken Teriyaki Day, I woke up to find a bed of fresh chicken feathers blanketing the front yard. My brothers and I ran outside as fast as possible to build feather forts and pelt each other with feather balls. Warming up with my family around the grill eating delicious bowls of chicken, veggies, and rice is one of my fondest childhood memories.”

“National Chicken Teriyaki Day was the only time my whole family was together, so we always took the opportunity to take a family picture. In each one, my cousin would do something funny with his empty teriyaki bowl – he’d wear it as a hat or use it like a drum. It was only later that we learned he didn’t know what bowls were for.”

“When we were kids, we would stay up all night just to glimpse the Teriyaki Bunny hiding delicious chicken all over the house. We never did catch that rabbit in the act, but who can forget waking up and running around the house to fill your bowl with chicken teriyaki with your siblings?”

“My family had a tradition of volunteering on National Chicken Teriyaki Day. We would take teriyaki bowls to our neighbors who had never tried it before. Seeing someone take their first bite of teriyaki is special and reminds you of what the day is really about.”
