Turkey or Ham? Christmas Eve or Christmas Day?

What does everyone have for their special dinner? We have turkey at my Dad's house, and ham at my Aunt and Uncle's. Also, does anyone here have their dinner on Christmas Eve? We've always had our dinner on Christmas Eve. Oh no...I just got a craving!! Turkey...gravy...potatoes...turnip...STUFFING!! And to top it all off...PUMPKIN ICE-CREAM PIE!!! AHHHH!!!

Tell me what you have for your special dinners. Also if you want the recipe for the pumpkin ice-cream pie, let me know...it is TO DIE FOR!! And unbelievably simple!

Our "big" dinner is whenever is most convenient for the majority of the family. More often than not, it's on Christmas Eve, and usually it's ham.

We have our big Christmas dinner with the extended family here on Christmas Day. We have turkey with all the trimmings. Usually we have stuffed shells too. For dessert I make pies apple crumb, pumpkin and sweet potato.

On Christmas Eve we have dinner at home with just our little family. We have a seafood dinner. We got o the local market on Christmas Eve afternon and order what ever seafood we want. Shrimp, clams, crab cakes, snow crab legs, etc. Our daughter loves steamed shrimp. Our little man is still to young to enjoy it but maybe next year.

When I lived in California, our friends always had their big dinner at 10:00 Christmas Eve night. Tamales, menudo and all the other fixins'. Our family would usually have the big todo on Christmas day with a big ham dinner with all the fixins.
Now that I'm out here in AZ, our friends have a get together on Christmas Eve and then leftovers or a buffet Christmas Day when their grandkids are with them.

We have both ham and turkey. We eat a Christmas Eve lunch, go to church for a candlelight service, then come home, read the story of Christ's birth from the book of Luke, then tear the stuffing out of all the presents! It's quite a sight to behold. Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas all !

Christmas Eve we all go to Mrs.Eagle's side of the family. This year it's her sister's house. My brother-in-law usually makes deep fried turkey. And it's great ! The kids (most over 21), enjoy slicing up potatoes and making "American Fries". We all take turns on Christmas Eve, last year was our year. No one beats Mrs. Eagle's upside down turkey, and my kettle'ed ham. Christmas day is at my sister's - more turkey and ham. You have to understand - in our family there's NEVER too much turkey or ham.

Otherwise it's about the same as Christmas_Tex, right down to the preasents.
