Whatever my daughter decides as she is doing Christmas at her place. I can't wait for her vegan goodies. We will probably bring the mac and cheese and broccoli casserole because the family has that every year and anything else she asks us to bring.

For our nuclear family Christmas we have pizza fondue & some sort of dessert fondue. Last year I bought some spiced wine & it was very nice warmed up so I think I'll do that again.

For Christmas we do a very light breakfast, hot & cold appetizers around noon and then dinner around 3pm. There will be shrimp as one of the appetizers and standing rib roast, mashed potatoes and several vegetables for dinner.

We graze all day on Christmas. We start with brunchy items. So we'll have a fruit platter and mini-quiches. Then we'll have a spiral ham, potatoes au gratin, shrimp platter and homemade cookies. I'm hoping for appetizers from everyone. One sis-in-law brought scallops wrapped in bacon for T'giving, so I'm hoping to make those myself. My younger son does a killer queso dip, so I'll ask for his recipe - since he and my daughter-in-law won't be here . My other daughter-in-law has started bringing cheesecake to family gatherings, so she'll probably get stuck bringing that again! (it's such a hit!)

For breakfast I'll make a German pancake and an egg/bacon/potato casserole.
For dinner I'm thinking we'll just grill some steaks.

On Christmas morning I always get up early and make Monkey Bread. We just kind of snack the rest of the day and then have turkey and all for dinner. It's just a cozy day at home.

On NYE our tradition is to have fondue!

In the tropics of Australia it is either hot and dry or hot and rainy so hot cooked meals are often replaced with lots of seafood and cold roast meats or cold ham plus salads and usually eaten outside.

It is usually just me, hubby and the kids for Christmas (family issues), so we usually have pancakes and syrup or bacon, fried eggs, grilled tomato and toast for breakfast. Lunch will be as above and dinner is usually left overs. We usually potter about during the day, play under the sprinklers if it's hot, watch videos or go to the river or beach to cool off. It is also the one day where I almost always disposable plates etc because I don't want to wash up.

This is our first Christmas as a family of 3! Our tradition has been to have waffles for Christmas eve dinner before church at 5, then banana splits after church. Then on Christmas day it's cinnamon rolls for breakfast, and I think this year we're having lasagna, Italian bread, and caesar salad for dinner. We had that last year and it was so easy because I made the lasagna ahead of time and just had to heat it up.
