Christmas is waited for year-round by kids and adults. You know when the time is coming because every company in the world lets you know not even an hour into Thanksgiving (in America.) While many people love the gifts and the spirits, both mentally and drunkenly, some people are in it just for the Christmas food.
Just check Google or Yahoo! Everyone's looking for some great recipes. Everybody is rushing to find a sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, or prime rib recipe to wow all of the relatives and friends that are sure to be at their party or little get-together.
I prefer the snack foods during Christmas more than anything. Buffalo chicken dip, fudge, and Christmas cookies are usually at the top of our list! After we perfected our kick ass salsa recipe, it's been high up there with the foods we really want to see. It'd be times like this we'd want the Pac-Man cookie cutters you see to the left.
Besides the actual fudge and baked goods, there's tons of candy. It's pretty ridiculous when you sit back and think about all of the food people eat on Christmas. People might eat more on Christmas than Thanksgiving if you count the seemingly infinite snacking that goes on in-between eating. I would name the different Christmas dishes there are out there, but I don't think there's enough time in the world to write or read them. One thing's for sure, though: I'm not big on "figgy pudding." Yeah, you can keep that.
Do you have any favorite Christmas dishes?
