Last week we talked all about breakfast on Christmas Day and I loved hearing all about your Christmas Breakfast traditions.
Today I thought it would be fun to talk about Christmas Eve and Christmas Day dinners.
When I was growing up we always had a nice dinner on Christmas Day. It was often either turkey or ham served with lots of side dishes and desserts.
One dessert that always made an appearance on Christmas Day was my dad’s favorite dessert, which is Sour Cream Raisin Pie. It is a recipe that came from my grandmother and it has been a favorite of my dad’s since he was a child. My mom always makes sure to make it for Christmas.
Now with my own family it really varies what we serve on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Many times we spend it with family and friends. Other times like this year, we host Christmas dinner at our house. This year I am serving ham with lots of side dishes and desserts.
Last year Oklahoma was hit with a blizzard and we were forced to stay home for both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, but it turned out to be a wonderful Christmas. We were forced to stay in and slow down. There was no fancy or big dinner, but it was a perfect Christmas.
Now I would love to hear your family traditions for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day Dinners. What do you love to serve and share with your family for holiday dinners?
