Christmas in the Dragon World

Post by KBABZ » Tue Dec 24, 2019 7:00 pm

Have the Dragon Ball characters ever celebrated Christmas outside of title page artwork? If not, how do you think they would? Outside of Dragon Ball Baubles of course (Ballbles?).

I like to think Chi Chi and Goku have a romantic Christmas dinner at KFC

I’d love to know how Toriyama would depict Jesus in his work.

I don't think Jesus would threaten to kill God like Goku did.

There's some symbolism with Fused Zamasu in the anime which references Jesus and the Cross, that's the only thing that comes to mind.
"Oh I've learned a lesson. Mortals are even more dangerous than I thought. Know this...Goku...I will never forget you."

Zamasu fan.

Jesus possibly existed in the DB universe, at least in the anime. During the Baba tournament, when Upa and Puar fight the vampire, Upa acts like a cross and “Jesus Christ” floats across the screen

Maybe Santa Claus would be a Kaioshin dedicated to spreading joy to mortal children.

I should really just relax..." - MST3K theme song

Buddhists don't celebrate Christmas.

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

You're referencing OG Dragon Ball? Never watched/read the Piccolo arcs... (well, I am halfway through the first one)...

I’m going to be honest here, when I saw your username, I was pretty confused for a second there.
