Christmas can be hard when you're single, and surrounded by happy couples who seem to be MOCKING you at every turn.
Well . . . there's one restaurant that wants to fix that.
PiaPia is a restaurant in Tokyo, Japan . . . and they've announced they're BANNING couples from eating dinner there on Christmas Eve.
In Japan, Christmas Eve is the main day people celebrate Christmas . . . or just go out to eat and exchange gifts even if they're NOT Christian. Then Christmas itself is a regular work day . . . that's just how Japan rolls.
Anyway, the restaurant says they don't want couples making single people feel bad for eating alone . . . OR making their single staff members feel, quote, "severe emotional trauma."
