    What's on your Christmas menu?
    At our house it's:

    Dinner:
    Turkey with stuffing
    Smoked ham
    turkey gravy
    sour cream & chive mashed potatoes
    green peas
    corn
    candied yams
    cheddar Broccoli
    cranberry sauce
    hot rolls

    Desserts:
    pumpkin pie (3 of them)
    peach pie
    cookies (tons of them)
    lots of different candies
    and a gingerbread house

    Drinks:
    hot chocolate w/ marshmellows
    green tea
    various bottles of pop
    milk
    grape juice


    There's probablly other things I'm forgetting. Christmas is the only day of the year that every member of the family gets together so we make it one heck of a huge feast.

    We're going to MIL's for Christmas Eve dinner and Christmas Day dinner. Hubby is Italian so tonight will be an approximation of the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Since several family members are allergic to shellfish she makes a slightly different meal than is traditional. I'm bringing a home-made spanokopita. (Phyllo dough...never again!)

    Tomorrow MIL is serving a pork roast and I'm not sure what else. It will be a nice surprise.

    Happy eating folks!

    Christmas in Russia is, unfortunately, not as big a thing as the New Year's. So we've had pelmeni...

    Geno, Come on over for dinner, we always have enough to feed a small army for a week!

    Do you do a big dinner new years or is it parties? We have the big New Years parties also. Midnight is a big deal here, usually everyone is so drunk by midnight that someone can set the clock back a few minutes and the count down and cheers are repeted. Two new years in one night... LOL

    Pelmeni? I just did a google and found a recipe for it. It looks good! My favorite foods are Chinese and Italian, but after looking at this recipe I may add Russian to my favorites.



    Oh, I forgot to include the fruit salad and the cheese ball in the list above. They are standard items on the Christmas menu at our house.

    We do a BIG dinner for the New Year's. Normally, a big family dinner. It starts late and goes until midnight (in certain instances well over)... I guess, the significance of the New Year's vs Christmas is mainly conditioned by the fact that for over 70 years this country had been under the regime that would demolish churches, imprison preasts and all kinds of preachers, etc, etc... Nowadays, Christmas is celebrated, but the Russian Orthodox one (which is on the 7th of January every year).

    Thanks for asking, Kitty. It is always fun sharing something about Russia...

    It's interesting that Russia celebrates on Jan 7th. Around here the old timers claim that Jan 6th at midnight is "old" Christmas. Maybe their ancestors are Russian.

    I'm very interested in other countries customs and celebrations. I have incorporated many of them into my personal beliefs. I like to learn the customs of my ancestors, and my ancestors hail from many different places around the world.

    That fits in with what the old timers say. They claim that the cattle will all wake up and be lowing at midnight. Every year I plan to go out to listen and find out for myself (their are hundreds of cattle in the pastures around my house) but I always forget to go outside or else I fall asleep early that night. Maybe this will be the year I finally discover if it's true.

    Somebody remind me on Jan 6th so I don't forget.
