I didn't even know that was a thing.

We're not Christian, but my family has a habit of going to a particular Chinese restaurant on Christmas Eve.

When growing up yes, but for the last 20 years, we've done Tex-Mex fir Christmas Eve.
This was introduced to me by my in law's when I first met my husband, and I've done this ever since.
We have Italian on Christmas night.

Every Christmas Eve we have Klub, a Norwegian potato dumpling with Ham in the center. My mouth is watering in anticipation.

No. We don't even do a traditional Christmas *Day* dinner. (This year, that'll be salmon & rice with stir-fried vegetables, and a vegetarian lasagna.) I don't think we put any "holiday" thought into the Eve dinner, but then we don't really celebrate Christmas.

Usually we do a "Norman Rockwell" style dinner. BUT, this year, for the first time in 35 years, we'll be alone for Christmas. Our son (Navy Pilot) and his family are in Japan, daughter1's job moved out of state and daughter2's husband (Navy Seal) couldn't get time off until New Years eve. We'll be going out to dinner.

We do fondue also! It's a tradition I started about 8 years ago. I've never heard of anyone else doing this. We do a cheese pot and an old pit. You?

Cheese and broth! We used to do cheese and oil but we switched to broth several years ago since it's healthier and has more flavor.

True, but you can't do the mushroom caps filled with green goddess cream cheese then dipped in tempura with broth. My family would stage a coup if I switched it up at this point. Enjoy tonight! Merry Christmas!🎄

I don't eat mushrooms anyway. 😉We did just make Green Goddess Sauce though! Merry Christmas to you too! 🎄

Usually, but this year, my oldest has requested my homemade lasagna and since he's stationed in Cali and I rarely see him, I'm going with that.

For the past 15 years, we've been going to my husband's aunt's house. She makes spaghetti. About 3 years ago, my husband's uncle passed. The dinner moved to his cousin's house and she makes lasagna. This year, my husband is making garlic rolls to take with us.

No, we traditionally have Christmas Day dinner but maybe nothing this year.

Yes, my father-in-law makes a traditional Swedish Christmas Eve dinner. It's terrible, so I started making a traditional Puerto Rican Christmas dinner so we wouldn't have to eat leftovers.

Pizza, chicken wings, barbecued meatballs, and fancy cheese and crackers. :)
