    Holiday Traditions

    Since the holiday season has came I was wondering what are some Tradtional foods people have. My mom makes Finnish Tarts which I dont like. And we also have egg nog and coke which is better than it sounds.

    Well, turkey... :lol:

    To drink, we usually have a nice thick glass of maple syrup. j/k

    Turkey, taters, almond bread wreath, scrambled eggs for brunch.

    That's all I can really think of right now. The food and stuff is usually a blur - I'm in it for the presents! :lol:

    Thanks PPE for the sig.

    If you also add some spiced rum and kahlua to that eggnog & coke you get an eggnog paralyzer, this is something I got my wife hooked on 10 years ago so I guess it is now a tradition.

    This year we are have our big Christmas dinner Christmas Eve not to interfere with the game on Christmas...see what a little eggnog can do

    Every Christmas morning, we have to pack up the kids and head over to my Mom's for home made cinnamon rolls. Sounds good, right?

    They usually aren't.

    While I suspect that they would do quite well as 3-man slingshot ammo, as a culinary delight they fall far short of the mark.

    But, year after year, we arrive (fashionably late) and smile as we gnaw on a rock...errr...roll. I haven't the heart to tell her we all hate them.

    Of course, the egg dish she makes as well more than makes up for the blasted rolls.

    Christmas Day have to look forward to a large portion of Christmas pudding to round off dinner.... mmmm
    The other thing to look forward is on Boxing Day, cold meat, pickle and bubble and squeak - thats mashed potato and vegetables mixed together and fried .... lovely !
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    We always get together as a family on Christmas Eve and have a big dinner and play games. That way Christmas day is for being lazy and this year for watching football!!

    Re: Holiday Traditions

    Christmas Eve,

    This year I'll be just staying home, probably looking for children shows about Christmas to watch with my Son, playing a game or two with him also....My wife has to work second shift..

    Christmas Day,

    I wake up at 4 and head to my friends Rickys house, he will have a big breakfeast ready for us (was my turn last year)..

    After we eat, we head out to a local lake and do some early mourning Ice fishing, and watch the sunrise.....Then at about 8:00 am we pack things up to go to our familys....Something weve done for the past 5 years now.

    I'll go home, my wife and son and I will open some gifts and put the rest in the car.. We will head to my sisters and have Dinner and celebrate with her, our niece, and my Father..

    I'll be making Oyster Stew, and a Roast Beef.....My sister will make a ton of good things as usuall..

    Watch football, take a nap..hhahahahhahahah

    Merry Christmas

    PS: Go back home and Start Packing for my MN trip.....


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.
