The American Christmas Table

jpc8015 | Nov 24, 201110:23 PM

Now that Thanksgiving is over we can focus on Christmas. As much as I love the Thanksgiving dinner, it is very predictable. Every table will have turkey, some variation of stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie, etc...

In my view Christmas is where America's cultural and ethnic diversity shines. My mom's family used to always have lutefisk and lefsa on Christmas Eve. Christmas day was a production with prime rib, baked potatoes, salads, rolls, and a ton of desserts. I know some Mexican families that get together nd make a ton of tamales, and some Eastern European families that do a ton of pierogies.

What are your Christmas traditions and where do they come from?
