    i like a big dinner of christmas just because i love food :rofl: no 'traditional' foods so far though, DH and i have only had 2 Christmas's as a married couple...the first one was spent in a complete empty house as we had just moved and the movers did not bring our stuff, making us wait...and the second year i really can't remember!! Not too special i suppose!

    Christmas eve meal is chili and oyster stew with sliced meats, pickles and other relishes, and small sweets.

    Christmas day meal is roast turkey, stuffing and all the trimmings.

    I'm in upper Midwest USA and most everyone I know has similar fair.

    It's lunchtime here, and I'm getting hungry!

    When I was young we never did anything special on Christmas eve for dinner but the traditional Turkey dinner on Christmas day...

    In the last few years I lived at home my mum didnt want to cook (well she had done it for like over 20 years!) so we started getting Indian take aways on Christmas day instead.

    Last year was my first year when I moved in with OH so we decided to have little chinese/indian nibbles on Christmas Eve and then Traditional Turkey on the day.
