11 Classic Christmas Foods

Food / a year ago

I don’t know about you, but I’m starving. The holidays do that to me. The best part about Christmas is seeing all the different types of dishes each family has. Thanksgiving is great, but most households eat the same stuff. But Christmas? So many cultures celebrate this holiday, it’s great to see the diversity.


Just thinking about all that yummy food I have two days to eat is enough alone to get me excited. And walking into a kitchen that smells like frying fish and roasting potatoes? Priceless. If you’re as excited as I am, check the list below for some classic American Christmas treats.
