Yes we do the same TURKEY for Thanksgiving, and a spiral slaced HAM for Christmas. It just don't seem right to have turkey for both holidays. you got a + for your post.

Turkey on Thanksgiving and Ham on Christmas. I usually have to cook two turkeys for Thanksgiving because we have so many people that come over to dinner.

Wow, you must have a huge get together. Sometimes I wish I was part of a big family like that. My family is real small.

We have ham on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Nobody in our family likes turkey enough to make a whole one. So, its ham for us.:)

I forgot about having ham on Easter. Yeah, I can see where if you're not a big ham eater that it might be too much to have it on Christmas and Thanksgiving.

We do the same thing at our house. We have turkey at Thanksgiving and ham at Christmas. I wouldn't dream of having it any other way :)

The only time I eat turkey is on Thanksgiving or Christmas when it's a freshly baked turkey. I can't stand turkey lunch meat.

My house has only turkey; my boyfriend's house has ham and turkey at both holidays. I don't really like ham, because it's too salty to me. However, there is a really good raisin sauce that makes the ham all right. You heat up the raisins in a small pan with the juices of the ham, meanwhile mix cornstarch and some water on the side, then add all ingredients and simmer. There are various recipes online, and it just makes the ham so much more festive!

I'm going to give that raisin sauce a try. It sounds wonderful.

I love Salmon. The rest of my family isn't big on fish so I don't think they would like it if I skipped the turkey this year and made Salmon. They might roast me instead.

Turkey!! We have ham on Christmas too. But then again sometimes we have both Ham and Turkey at Christmas. My question to you would be what sides do you prefer with your turkey? I can pass on cranberry sauce myself.

I have to have sweet potatoes. I love sweet potatoes. We also have mashed potatoes, corn, stuffing, rolls, green beans and cranberry sauce. I can pass on the cranberry sauce but my husband loves to mix it with his turkey.

We have an annual family reunion every Thanksgiving. It is held in a restaurant so we havce both turkey and ham...along with all the lovely trimmings: mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, sweet potatoes, several types of vegies, salad, cheese, bread, fruit, cake and oodles of pies. The food is really yummy and, best of all, cleanup.
