Turkey or ham?

On Christmas day, do you eat turkey or ham for your Christmas Dinner? I eat ham, it's a tradition at my house.

We don't really have a tradition as to what we eat on christmas day.
Sometimes it's turkey, sometimes trout, sometimes steak.

I've heard about ham as a traditional christmas dish, but never could find a recipe. Can somebody put up a recipe here?
Would'nt mind to try it out this year.

We have a complete Christmas buffet, which includes baked turkey, fried turkey, maple ham, fried chicken, salmon, greens, green beans, mac & cheese, sweet potatos, wild rice, rolls, and tons of deserts. We try to have something for every adult and every child.

It is always Turkey here on Christmas but if any of the men have killed a deer we also have venison which I marinate for a couple days before baking on Christmas. Yummy!

I much prefer turkey to ham, in fact I would prefer pork roast or veal to ham -even pickerel, but that doesn't sound very Christmassy. I am not a big fan of ham - I do not like green eggs and ham.
My mother prepares Turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas Dinner and Ham for Boxing Day.
