On Christmas Eve we have strictly fish and seafood, it really varies judging on who is doing the shopping and what their tastes are. But normally a crabmeat stuffed sole or tilapia, scallops, shrimp cocktail, and then assorted veggies-- that sorta thing.
Christmas day we normally start off with Ravioli or Penne in meat sause (in liue of a salad), then break out the small appetizers, stuffed clams and mushrooms, fried cauliflower, Breads and Cheeses, kielbasa (polish sausage) and then whatever odds and ends family members bring over the house.
For dinner we have the Ham, Heavenly Ham THE BEST for those in the know, and with all the fixings. Desert is all Italian pastries and cookies like pignoli cookies, Sfogliatelle (or Lobster Tails as some call them, my favorite) Boconnotto (a type of cream puff), and cannoli. Then all the cakes and pies, Tiramisu, Pumpkin, Apple, etc.
We're Italian so we eat a lot and being in a culturally diverse area we eat a lot of different kinds of food.
"I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." ~Charles Dickens
