On Christmas Eve we go to the in-laws where my mother-in-law serves tons of hors dourves and appetizers for their Christmas Eve open house. Marinated meatballs that are absolutely out of this world, little sausage bits in sauces, mini quiches, breaded veggie bites, chips & dip, veggies & dip, a seafood platter, chicken balls, etc. She usually makes a lasagna as well for the main dinner but I don't think anyone ever actually eats the main meal because we're all always way too stuffed from eating the hors dourves.

On Christmas Day we go to my family where it's the traditional family fare (for my family at least):

Turkey (I LOVE turkey!)
Stuffing
Mashed potatoes & gravy
Candied Yams
Baked Beans
Escalloped Corn
green bean casserole
Cranberry sauce
Burn and Serve rolls

I usually get together with my 5 brothers and their families, as well as my sister. We usually draw names, exchange gifts etc.. Some Christmas Eves. we do "traditional" dinners (which I prefer) other times we make it simple by having appetizers. I actually love turkey for Christmas dinner, along with my famous sage dressing, taters and gravy, cranberrie, my famous broccoli and cheese dish, rolls and desserts. I do recall one yr. thou I did make a prime rib but now I save that for the New Year.

We have a family party on Christmas Eve with turkey and ham, we have a large buffet. Approx. 25-30 people usually come. We have leftovers on Christmas day....Yum, I am so in the mood for that right now!

I am so hungry after reading this thread...

Usually we have Christmas Eve at my in-laws and just do finger foods while all the kids go through their presents. When we get home that evening, my wife makes stuffing that has sausage, celery and all kinds of good stuff in it. It is a meal in itself. On Christmas day, I'll fry a turkey after all the presents are open and my wife makes casseroles. We then eat the leftovers for several days - the best part!

mmm, sounds yummy! i'm in england, so can you explain to me what candied yams, escalloped corn and green bean casseroles are? i get the general idea but i just want to be sure!

on christmas eve, i spend the day at my mums and see most of the family, when we eat it's usually just things like sausage rolls, sandwiches, couple of slices of pizza. when i go home in the evening i get a takeaway with my partner.

christmas day is a strange one, after drinking heavily (!) at the pub, i go for a chinese meal with my dad, my sister and my dad's side of the family, we have a huge banquet including, spring rolls, peking duck, prawn toast, cod in plum sauce, king prawn seasonal vegetable, chicken black bean sauce, fillet steak in cantonese sauce,fried rice and a bottle or two of champagne!

boxing day is always a great day, about 25 of us on my mums side of the family go for a carvery and have a few bottles of wine, i have prawn cocktail for starter, the for my main course i turkey, stuffing, cranberry, roast potatoes, carrots, cauliflower cheese, brocolli, yorkshire pudding and lot's of gravy. puding is treacle sponge with lot's of custard, and yes, i do put a bit of weight on over the festive period. HO HO HO!

On Christmas Eve, we always go to my in-laws. We have different things to eat every year. She lets us know ahead of time what the ''theme'' is going to be. Some years it is an all out feast, other years it may be finger foods. We have had BBQ, pot luck, sandwiches, and everything in between. We just have to bring something that goes along with her ''theme'' (and that my kids will eat). She has had some strange ones before.

On Christmas Day, we always go to my mother's house. There we always have a "traditional" Christmas meal...ham, potatoes (mashed and/or potato salad), dressing, gravy, corn, pinto beans, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese, rolls, yams or sweet potato casserole, and my chicken casserole (my nephews and nieces fuss if I don't). We usually have other stuff to go along with the traditional things, but it differs from year to year depending on what my sister wants. Desserts are different from year to year also except for an Oreo pie. I make that every year for my kids and nephew.

We should put a warning with this thread:

Turkey on both Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Nothing can top it in my opinion!
