Hi all, I'm curious to know what's Christmas Supper like around the world... like what do you traditionally eat, etc... Around here it's traditional to eat cod and baked potatoes, or in some cases octupus (and lots of sweet desserts lol ), and then unwrap the presents around midnight... this is all on the 24th... then on the 25th there's a Christmas lunch where people either eat the remains of the 24th's supper, or turkey. Also we don't have boxing day here, because we open the presents on the 24th... so Christmas Day is actually our boxing day I'm not counting the masses because i don't go there... What's it like where you live? Share my friends share!! And happy xmas!

For Christmas i will be getting Duck filled with Pruims and Apples together with a range of vegetables, for dessert we will be getting Ris รก l'amande. This artcle pretty much decribes the Christmas Evening Dinner in Denmark; htpp://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2450326/the_classic_danish_christmas_evening.html?cat=22

It is pretty good actually, the duck meat can tend to be a little dry, but with all the right vegetables, sauce and potaoes it turns out quite tastey. If you have a bigger family gathered they may instead of Duck have the same version but with Goose.

Our "noche buena" is always about family (either immediate or extended). it's rare that we get to see each other in a year so we take the opportunity to bond and just be happy. it also means opening gifts, dancing and singing. Since everyone is present, all that's left to do is to eat and have fun! :D But of course before all of those, it's important for us to visit the church first to greet the Lord and to give thanks for everything. It's His birthday so He should really be the One we should think about first. :D

My supper will be with the family of my mother, we will eat some fresh food made by my mom and by her aunt. We will go to Boston to see them. And maybe, it's will have a lot of "regalos" (gifts in spanish).
