    Australia. Entree starts at around 12-1, and then we usually pace ourselves 'til about 4-5. Generally we skip dinner on Christmas, unless there's cheese.

    This year for Christmas lunch we had rolled pork roast with crackling, roast chicken, roast turkey, potato wedges, green beans, cauliflower/cheese casserole, and rolls. For dessert there was cheesecake, trifle and pavlova.

    Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Chung tonight.

    Okay thanks. I looked those up and seems like danish have some similar malt beer to kotikalja called hvidtøl Beer in Denmark - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that they also drink traditionally on christmas

    Like 20 family members all congregate at my ISFJ 2w3 Grandmother's house and we have WAY too much food.

    We typically have red wine and water for drinks.

    Dinner:
    Roast turkey
    Stuffing
    Spiral ham
    Homemade enchiladas (favorite!)
    Mashed potatoes
    Gravy
    Weird pea dish my aunt made
    Fruit salad
    Jello salad

    For dessert:
    Cookies
    Pumpkin pie
    Cherry cream cheese pie
    Apple pie
    Chocolate pie
    Pecan pie (favorite!)

    Like I said, waaaaay too much food. Grandma goes overboard, and everything has to be perfect. But, we get to take home tons of leftovers and my mom always makes split pea soup out of the ham bone. Yum.
    Friends, waffles, work

    I've never had chess pie... I've always understood it to be similar to pecan, minus the pecans.

    Christmas was my most different this year so far.

    Christmas eve:

    Lychee flavored sake and plum wine
    Seaweed salad
    3 different types of sushi rolls - a spicy one, a savory one, a crunchy/creamy one mellow one
    ..and a tartare of seafood
    Afterwards, some lemon shine cocktails

    Christmas day: Everything was home cooked from a garden or fresh from the market
    Salad and a tomato corn basil soup
    Baked salmon
    A mixture of sweet potatoes and regular potatoes of different colors roasted and covered with spices and maple syrup
    A mixture of carrots of different colors roasted
    Tiramisu cake piece and a piece of apple cake for dessert
    Hot tea to drink and a glass of sweet white wine
    Kantgirl: Just say "I'm feminine and I'll punch anyone who says otherwise!"
    Halla74: Think your way through the world. Feel your way through life.

    Cimarron: maybe Prpl will be your girl-bud
    prplchknz: i don't like it
