One of the best parts of Christmas is Christmas dinner. Loosen your belt buckle, undo that top button on your pants, and get ready to eat.
Christmas dinner is usually eaten on Christmas Eve, or on Christmas day itself. Depending on where you live, there are many different types of food traditionally enjoyed during this meal. For us, it's all about the turkey. To go along with the turkey, we will eat mashed potatoes, turkey stuffing and lots and lots of gravy and cranberry sauce. Occasionally, we will toss a couple vegetables in there, but with all that turkey to eat, it is often hard to find room for those. Plus, with those Christmas cookies waiting for desert, you really need to budget your limited tummy space.
In other parts of the world, turkey is not the main dish served. Christmas dishes from other countries include:
- Iceland-Puffin or reindeer (hopefully it isn't the red nosed variety)
- Germany-Roasted goose and red cabbage
- Italy- Fried eel.
- Poland- Borscht and dumplings
- Portugal-Goat, lamb and octopus
- Japan-KFC chicken.
Once the meal is finished, it is then time to sit back, relax and enjoy a good Christmas movie.
