    My own family ( myself, husband , son, daughter, son in law, and Grandson) get together at my daughters house on Christmas Eve, we usually order Chinese Food and have all kinds of munchie foods, we usually watch Christmas movies, and listen to Christmas music, and we open one present. Everyone in my family stays home with their own families and does their own thing too, but usually my sister and i will somehow come together that night as well. Then on the 25th, my whole family ( all 5 of us siblings, and our spouses, and all 11 grandchildren ) gets together for a traditional turkey Christmas Dinner. We do it a little different these days, as my Mom always did the dinner, but now that she is 72 , we all help. My mother still makes the turkey, I make all the vegetables, usually mashed potatoes, green beans, Brussels sprouts and carrots, mashed turnip and carrots with butter and brown sugar, my sister makes a salad and takes care of all the desserts , we usually have cheese cake, pumpkin or apple pies with vanilla ice cream , we also have European chocolates, cashew nuts, cookies, shrimp rings with salsa, veggies and dips and other goodies throughout the house for nibbling on. We usually eat early around 4:00 , and then we all open our presents in the evening, we make one person designated Santa and they pass out the gifts one at a time and everyone gets to see what each person got. Another tradition we started a few years ago is we pick a name for Kris Kringle gifts. Our family has become so big now, so we buy for all the kids, but the adults names get put in a bag, and at Thanksgiving when we are all together we pick names and you buy for the person you pick, we have a $100 limit, so everyone gets a gift.

    We have my husband's side of the family over on Christmas Eve which is usually just sandwiches and other munchies. We open gifts from each other and then on Christmas Day it's usually just myself, Ron, and his sister. My kids usually go to their dad's house on Christmas Day after opening gifts here and eating my Mamaw's breakfast casserole that I continue to make even though she passed away 6 years ago. Then dinner is prime rib alternating every other year with turkey and ham. This year it's prime rib.

    We are doing Prime Rib this year. I'm not a fan of Turkey so I grudgingly cook it for the family on Thanksgiving. Christmas is my choice.

    So much fun reading all these posts...making me hungry!

    For the past 8 years or so I've celebrated Christmas Day at my great aunt and uncle's house. All the cousins get together there for lunch and we eat a traditional Indonesian meal. Indonesian food is sort of a cross between Chinese and Thai with an emphasis on spicy and coconut milk. Lots of different meats cooked in various ways...fried chicken, beef, roast pork, all served with "nasi kuning" or "yellow rice"--rice infused with tumeric. There's also gado-gado which is steamed vegetables with peanut sauce and shrimp chips, and noodle dishes.
    It's one of my favorite foods on the planet!

    I also just bought a 12lb turkey so i'm hoping to roast that on the day after X-mas.
