A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Christmas Dinner

I’m not quite sure why I never thought about it before. I suppose many people never consider it. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our own lives, going about our daily activities and seldom giving any thought to what is happening on the other side of the world.

As Christmas approaches, I got to thinking, there is little doubt about what will be on the menu Christmas day at my house … but what do other folks around the world eat on the 25th of December. I decided to find out, and you may be as surprised as I was at some of the dishes! Here’s a small sample of what other people are eating on this special day.

Czech Republic – fried carp and potato salad are the traditional meal in this eastern European country.

Germany – suckling pig, macaroni salad and rice porridge, plus a variety of sweets and baked goods.

Poland and Ukraine – a ritualized and elaborate meal which consists of 12 meatless dishes.

Mexico – tamales, rice, green chilies stuffed with cheese and a sweet drink called atole.

Portugal – cod fish and baked potatoes are the main fare.

Russia – meat dumplings followed by an array of pies and cakes.

Spain – starters such as salmon or prawns followed by homemade soup. The main dish is usually cod or shellfish.

Italy – as usual the Italians know how to live. A 7 course meal which starts with salads and moves right on through to roasted meats, pastas, puddings, fruit and cheese and winds up with chocolates.

Japan – believe it or not, the favorite is a bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken, followed by strawberry shortcake.

While everyone may have a different type of meal to enjoy on Christmas day, we all have one thing in common; we all share one special day together.
