Christmas food traditions

I've seen people eat prime rib, lamb, lobster, etc... so many different variations on Christmas.

Now I'm not talking about just turkey and ham obviously! What's your fams tradition? =)

  • Besides the usual, I make a pineapple stuffing. My S/O makes fried oysters. Then we always have a couple of different pies, with a nice cup of coffee.

  • Fish on Christmas Eve. No tradition for Christmas Day. Sometimes turkey, sometimes ham, I think we've even had beef.

  • We usually do the turkey thing, but on Christmas Eve, my sister and her fam cook chili. We've even had tamales. But you have to get really good authentic ones from south texas. OMG they are wonderful!
