    We always have a big lunch instead of dinner. Christmas lunch tends to be a little more summery here.

    Entree
    Seafood (usually crayfish and oysters) with champagne

    Main course
    Roast turkey and ham
    Whichever salads we choose to make (this year I'm making a watermelon salad, tomato salad, potato salad, and a simple greens salad)
    Red and white wine

    Dessert
    Sometimes pavlova, but this year it will be plum pudding with brandy ice cream
    And dessert wine

    No, Easter is usually mild here (around early 20s ºC / 70s ºF). Sunny enough to have an egg hunt.

    In terms of family/childhood, Christmas was celebrated mainly on Christmas Eve first of all, and was frequently represented to me by assorted nuts with nutcrackers, port wine cheese balls and crackers, rolladen or some kind of sausage/weinie, raw crudite veg with curry dip, Chex mix (oh the yearly Chex ritual, drying on newspaper in the laundry room), pecan pie, pumpkin pie, mince pie, seven layer cookies, fudge and punch or wine. I have a huge family and this involved extended relatives, not 700 pound diabetics.

    My mom more recently likes to switch things up and make brie in phyllo dough with berries, and you know, on Christmas day there's always stuff like green bean casserole, yams and mashed potatoes to go with the turkey or roast.

    When I am not with family, I try new recipes and also rely on "holiday" staples, interchangeable with Thanksgiving.

    This year I made white chocolate pumpkin fudge, and am probably having something like a tofu dish or spicy chickpeas and rice for dinner. Holidays are not so much food to me as music, church on Christmas eve, drinks and maybe movies and decoration.

    Where are you from? A country in Europe or the Southeastern US? Because holiday/Sunday "dinner" is common in the afternoon where I am from too. Plum pudding with brandy ice cream sounds lovely.

    Dinner is lunch, supper is the evening meal. It comes from the French dejuener I think, a third of the English language is French.

    I actually like the taste of wine. I would drink low alcohol wine, on some occasions, gladly.

    Your grandfather may have been an alcoholic.

    Southern Baptist aren't supposed to drink alcohol at all (like alcoholics, Southern Baptist convention, etc.) so that explains it.
