Christmas food

I'm curious...

What do you guys eat for Christmas? Or if it is different every year, what will you eat for Christmas this year?

Historically my mother cooks a big pot of chicken and rice as well as a ham. This will be the first Christmas ever that I have to cook my own.

Ours is very similar to Thanksgiving in the sense that there is a lot of home cooked stuff. It typically revolves around a sugar cured ham.

I say that because for most people, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Then, there is always the family that has seafood or something.

Same here.

There have been a few times on Christmas Eve when we mixed it up.

But chicken & rice is a constant.

well since we don't celebrate thanksgiving, Christmas dinner is normally something nice, chicken ham new potatoes and other things, bit of salad and maybe a trifle or pavalova for pudding. our family doesn't really go all out on the food, just make enough for the meal.

yeah Christmas to us is more about just getting together.

Never really thought about it before, but for us Thanksgiving and New Years sort of book ends the "holiday season" since you don't celebrate Thanksgiving do you celebrate something else a few weeks before Christmas that sort of ushers in the season? For us Thanksgiving is sort of when it's officially OK to put up lights, get the tree, start watching Christmas movies, etc.

As far as food at my house? Pretty much the same as everyone else has said -- Thanksgiving part II. My wife makes homemade peanut brittle candy, and some other awesome treats.

You're just weird. After the New Year, we go into the dead time where there are no holidays to look forward to for months.

I did forget to mention that Christmas is when Robin makes her peanut butter fudge.

It is to die for.

In Poland, Christmas Eve dinner is the most important celebration of the year. Although this meal is reserved for the closest family, it is customary to set an extra plate and seat for an unexpected guest or even a vagrant. Most of the dishes served are cooked specifically on this special day – and only once a year!

We eat for example:
Christmas Eve red borscht with ceps raviolis
Christmas Eve mushroom soup
Christmas Eve Carp
Carp Jewish style
Herrings
Pierogi - the most recognizable Polish food abroad
Braised Sauerkraut
Cabbage rolls
and much much more
