Family Food Holiday Traditions

What are the foods your family makes that it wouldn't seem like the holidays without?

My grandfather spent several years as a Dutch baker. He makes butter letter, almond tarts, and Krakelingen (pronounced crockalinger I think, they are a thin crispy sugar cookie loaded with butter and sprinkled w/sugar) and my aunt makes oliebollen (dutch donuts with rasins).

I can't imagine the holidays without them. We also try and sneak them out of my grandparents house before the holidays, and stop by a lot more often after Christmas when my grandmother is sick of the stuff.

So, what are the foods your family makes that it wouldn't seem like the holidays without?
