How and when has eating Chinese food on Christmas become an American Jewish tradition?

This Vox article from 2018 goes deep into the (very interesting!) history of this phenomenon: How eating Chinese food became a Jewish Christmas tradition

The gist of it is that Jews on NYC’s Lower East Side began eating at Chinese restaurants in the late 1890s, especially on Sundays, when Jews had no religious obligations (because Shabbat is on Saturday, while Christians observe their sabbath on Sunday) and Chinese restaurants were among the most likely to be open.
