Christmas & New Year Dinner Menu

Christmas dinner is a meal traditionally eaten at Christmas. This meal can take place any time from the evening of Christmas Eve to the evening of Christmas Day itself.

The meals are often particularly rich and substantial, in the tradition of the Christian feast day celebration, and form a significant part of gatherings held to celebrate the arrival of Christmastide.

In many cases, there is a ritual element to the meal related to the religious celebration, such as the praying of grace.
