    Ham & turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, stuffing, noodles, corn, rolls, baked bread and lots of desserts… cookies, pies & candies :)))

    We have ham; turkey; cornbread dressing with boiled eggs and asparagus in it; sweet potatoes or sweet potato pie; homemade noodles; real mashed potatoes and gravy; other vegetables like corn and green beans; cranberry sauce; homemade white bread, homemade rolls, or homemade sourdough; and homemade pies – chocolate cream, pumpkin, and coconut cream or apple. As much as possible, I make the crusts and pies with Splenda so even those who are Diabetic can have some. No one should have to look at a table full of dessert and have nothing.

  3. Susan Griffen

    We enjoy turkey, polish noodles, green bean casserole, traditional stuffing, sweet potato casserole, potatoes and gravy, home-baked rolls. Dessert, you name it.

    It’s evolving… as our family is evolving. We have vegetarians, vegans, carnivores and picky eaters. Every year I try to make a variety so there is something for everyone, but the thing I like to make the most is a beautiful carrot cake!

    Christmas Eve is always Swedish meatballs and potato salad and Christmas Day is Turkey, Ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, Mac and cheese, sweet potato casserole, fruit salad, stuffed dates, green bean casserole, corn pudding and rolls.

  7. Debi Martin

    I’ve actually been thinking I want to stop doing the traditional meal because I’m tired of it, but ours is slow cooked ham, mashed potatoes, and cream cheese jello salad….with the rest changing year to year.

  8. Betty Wilholt

    Hi, we always have ham, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, macaroni & cheese and lots of other goodies! Merry Christmas to all!

  9. Ann M

    It’s the meal that uses all 3 of my crock pots. Meatballs, scalloped potatoes, and vegetable casserole, all prepared and ready before guests arrive. The best thing on the menu is plenty of hugs to go around and an unbusy hostess.

  10. Kathy R

    This year we are doing the Christmas Story Dinner! Yes, Chinese Food- Chinese turkey which is Duck (**no head/neck to chop off), fried rice and all the other side dishes.
    Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to everyone!!

  11. Bev

    I love free food also but on the Holidays we always have ham and turkey, potatoes, meatballsbut first we get full on hordejures (or however you spell it), we have all kinds and lots of them.

  12. Judy Knox

    We usually have ham, sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, rolls and pie for dessert.

  13. Lucy

    Our family tradition is home made tamales. We gather a few days before Christmas at gramma’s house and we all prepare the fillings and masa. It’s a great time and very memorable. We have champurrado which is a hot chocolate, and someone bakes a ham and prime rib on Christmas day so there are a few choices. We also bake cookies and pies. Oh. We do have a salad on the side as well as cranberry sauce. Oh my.

  14. Randi Millward

    Appetizers as a meal!
    Meat and cheese tray, veggie tray, fruit tray, crackers, buffalo chicken dip, taco dip, bruschetta, stuffed mushrooms, olives, pickles, pizza crackers, bean dip, bbq hot dog slices with pineapple, etc.

  15. Dee S

    A true PA Dutch meal – chicken pot pie with biscuits, a side of succotash (beans and corn), and desserts – bob andy pie, shoo fly pie and raisin filled cookies!

  16. Dianna M.

    Christmas Eve dinner is eaten by candlelight usually with Bing Crosby playing in the background and includes mushroom soup, pirohy, macaroni and cheese, bobalki (all homemade), haddock, shrimp, and Oplatki with honey. Christmas Day is all the leftovers with ham.

  17. Carole

    I always make hamburger meat tacos with corn and flout tortillas. Three dozen of each. We love them left over. Also some fried rice and refried beans. I only make on Christmas Eve and then on Christmas Day no cooking. Once a year so we all look forward to them. But of course we have to have Pumpkin Pie with freshly whipped cream on Christmas. I also make a variety of fudge candy for family, friends and neighbors. Merry Christmas to you all…..


    Ham, corn casserole, mashed potatoes, fresh vegetables, salad, apple pie, sweet potato pie, white chocolate pretzels, tea and water along with all the people we love.

  19. Janice Christopherson

    Since it’s just my husband & I this year — we’re going to keep it simple. But our go to is Prime Rib — Coconut cream pie is the fav for Christmas dessert — of course some divinity would be wonderful too. Homemade cookies & Candies are my favorite Christmas memories.

  20. Darla Whittaker

    My family has ham for Christmas. We usually have a vegi tray, mashed potatoes and gravy and rolls. Christmas is when we make candy so we have several different kinds of candy plus cheese, meats and crackers for everyone to snack on during the day. Its a fun filled time for all.

  21. Gracie M

    My son is a chef; he prepares a traditional ham and turkey with dressing, sweet potatoes, lima beans, black eyed peas, fried cabbage and homemade rolls! He makes pecan pies, chocolate pies, coconut cream pies and sweet potato pie. I am hungry just thinking about it!

  22. Mary Struck

    Actually we have started something a bit different for our Christmas meal celebration. We have a late brunch with eggs, susage, bacon,(my grandsons favorite), cinnamon rolls, sometimes coffee cake and always a bowl of fruit. Coffee, tea and juice. My oldest son and his wife enjoy mimosas as well. Then later in the evening we have a small spread of salami, a couple of different cheeses, including goat cheese, crackers, fruit and a veggie tray and a relaxing glass of wine. And of course a few Christmas goodies. We all contribute and no one is left stuck in the kitchen cooking and cleaning up all day. It’s more relaxing and a lot less stress.

  23. Maria Shehan

    For my 80 years, family is treated with favorite dishes from each family group. Always turkey, ham, casseroles’, both meat and veggies. Desserts of cookies, cakes, pies, candy and Santa always has his meal with us . take home containers abound. its great.

  27. Judy Stolz

    This all depends on who is having Christmas this year! If it’s my daughter we will probably go out, if it’s my granddaughter and her grandmother it will be Turkey with all the trimmings, and amazing bake goods for dessert!

  28. Carmen

    My in-laws always insist that we have creamed chicken on Christmas Eve (can you tell I’d like something different after all these years?)

  29. Linda Woods

    We usually have the traditional items like ham, turkey, candied yams, greens, corn pudding, cranberry sauce, giblet gravy, cornbread, various desserts. Be honest with you, I’d rather have gumbo, chicken or seafood, it doesn’t matter. Born to two Louisiana parents, this was a regular menu item. I love it.

  30. Lorraine Saxon

    Thanksgiving we do a turkey and all the basics with homemade rolls, pies. Thankful for my bread machine. At Christmas we always start out with our traditional Christmas Morning Casserole and if I am feeling really frisky Copycat Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls. Thankful for my bread machine again. Then it is ham and all the basic trimmings with homemade pies and rolls again. It is a lot of work for me but watching everyone enjoy it all is my reward.

  31. Terri LaBarbera

    We don’t really have a traditional Holiday meal for Christmas. We just try to think of something that we haven’t had in a long time and would like for Christmas. So, this year we decided to have lasagna, garlic bread, and salad.

  32. Diana Stenner

    Grandma’s pepperpot soup, crackers, cheese, seven layer Jell-O, 24-hour fruit salad, with Christmas cookies for dessert!

  33. Ann Hunting

    My new favorite holiday meal is smoked prime rib, baked or cheesy potatoes and salad. and of course, pie!

  34. Angela Stoutenger

    Christmas Eve we have fried fish and fried dough. We also would have spaghetti with shrimp and lobster sauce. But this year we are going to enjoy the pasta and seafood sauce on Christmas Day so we can enjoy all the food instead of stuffing ourselves.

  35. Janet

    We alternate meals this year it’s going to be brisket, ribs cold salads and baked potatoes, deviled eggs. With several desserts. Other years we have Italian or Mexican. We are a pretty large family.

    Thank you

  36. BarbMac Vt

  37. Monique Venne

    Our favorite Christmas dinner is Cornish game hens with a curry marinade, pistachio rice pilaf, veggies, and pumpkin pie for dessert.

  38. Sue

    When i was younger, Mom would roast a turkey and baste it with Dad’s homemade grape wine. Then she used the pan drippings, which included the wine drippings, to make the gravy. The gravy was quite unusual!

  39. Sharon Aurora

    Turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, mincemeat pie, Eggnog.

  40. Jean V

    We have everything on Christmas Eve and it is a table of “snacky-stuff”. Taco Dip and Chips, Shrimp Dip and Crackers, Swedish Meatballs and Noodles, Mini-BBQ Hot Dogs, Braun Ball, Herring, and Ham and Dinner Rolls. Then we start in with the “goodies” of petite fores, cookies, and cake and ice cream. There is never a lack of food at our house!

  41. Sheila Gaston

    Above all, we must have a double amount of “Potato Stuff” aka Funeral potatoes. This year I am doubling the ingredients for my son and his family. Don’t know what else we will be having. Also he has requested “P-nut butter balls”. I have doubled the recipe and I will drizzle the melted chocolate over it as I haven’t found Paraffin wax. It’s o.k. because they make it without the chocolate and enjoy it that way.

  42. Christi

    In the past it was Prime Rib, twice baked potatoes, green beans, rolls and pecan pie. Not sure this year.

  43. Jayne Miller

    Christmas dinner: prime rib, garlic mash potatoes, asparagus with creme reuse. With lots of family and friends to share with.

  44. Christine York

    You use to be ham when my parents was alive. Now it is another family and friends we have Potato soup!! It really is a lot of snacking

  45. Jessie Stampfli

    Christmas Eve we are doing appetizers at in-laws then we host Christmas Day and we have ham, sweet potatoes, spinach-cheese crockpot casserole, salad, rolls and dessert of cookies/pie, two punch bowls with sherbet punch and cranberry punches. Can’t wait!
