As we are a bit of a mix we decided long ago to follow the British system of having a turkey on the 25th. It is in the oven now. But we also follow the German tradition of having a special meal together as a family on the evening of the 24th. Even though our kids are no longer teenagers and are more German than anything, they said it isn't Christmas unless I do a turkey, roast potatoes and especially a lot of gravy today. So no matter which country we happen to be in, my duties a few days before are to search high and low for the bird.

Love your broccoli tree Mark! I hope that your turkey dinner is delicious..I'm sure that it will be.
Happy Hogswatch everybody btw
Today we have thinly sliced ham, fried eggs and chips (fries)with pickles and bread and butter. There will just be Jeff and myself here (and the dog!). Our son will be home on January 3rd so I'll cook up a turkey crown the following weekend, pigs in blankets, cauliflower and broccoli cheese, shredded brussel sprouts and bacon with Worcestershire sauce, roast taters, carrots, peas, sausagemeat stuffing and gravy...I'll probably invite my sister and one of the nieces as well.
We had so much turkey at Thanksgiving that I decided to do a beef roast for Christmas. (The traditional meal +2 leftovers meals, 3 meals of Turkey Tetrazinni, 2 meals of turkey carcass soup...)
Since we had hoped to ski today, I planned a crockpot beef roast recipe that’s outrageously rich and delicious. But the snow hasn’t cooperated for skiing so we went for a walk instead. Came home to mouth-watering aromas.
BTW, I also bought a small “breast turkey” (no legs or wings) for later this week, just because.
