Christmas

Collection of christmas recipesjump to the recipes

While most holidays have some special foods attached to them, Christmas seems to have the most variety. It's probably because Christmas is celebrated in so many ways leading up to the actually holiday - and it usually involves food.

Here in the U.S. we typically have parties long before the actual day. Office, school, or just celebrating "the holidays" with friends. These parties often involve festive drinks like wassail or hot buttered rum. Cookies are another huge part of Christmas. It seems like everyone has their favorite kinds that they make year after year: shortbread, candy cane cookies, cathedral windows, cherry winks, mincemeat and more.

Then there is the actual Christmas feast which can include a day-long feeding frenzy from a family brunch to dessert after dinner. Some traditional dinner foods include prime rib, turkey, goose, or ham. The side dishes often are similar to those served at Thanksgiving and include sweet potatoes, green beans, or stuffing.

No matter how you celebrate at the holidays, we hope that these recipes will make things just a little extra festive for you and your family.
