I am going to read through this thread, to get some more ideas... we are hosting this year, and have basically opened our home for Christmas Day, so family (and a few close friends) are invited to come by whenever they can / want too, and we will have a Christmas Dinner at 5pm that day... if people just want to come for dinner that's fine, or if people have come earlier and stay that is fine too, all we've asked is that they bring something to contribute food wise... there will be 15 adults and 3 children (all under 5) for dinner...
So far we will be serving (which I'm sure will be heaps):
Vegie steak wraps
Cold rice salad
Brandy baskets, ice cream, maple syrup and grated chocolate
Mini mars bars Christmas pudding
Tim tam balls
Ginger bread and short bread
Oh and champagne slushies, if I remember!
And for lunch, for whoever is around, I just thought some ham sandwiches would be heaps...

This christmas it will be df, and I, ds, bro, sil, mum and dad, and any drop ins. Possibly but not likely another brother and his 7 yo twins.
Our menu is the same every year, its our tradition.
Bacon and eggs on toast
Coffee (those that drink it)
Roast chicken, turkey, and pork
Roast potato and pumpkin
Honey steamed carrots
Steamed Cauliflower, peas, corn cobs
Gravy and cheese sauce
Left over meats
On the table is always an assortment of nuts, fruit and lollies.
We also have deserts of xmas cake, plum pudding and custard.
Its usually a buffet style/serve yourself ordeal, and is the only day of the year everyone eats together, all 3 meals. (dad never eats breakfast but makes an exception) and isn't always home during the year due to work, so it was always realy special growing up eating 3 meals in a day at the table as a family.

I think all we do is eat for three days straight over Xmas. We are at my parents this year and it's normally
Large antipasto platters with cold Italian meats, salamis, cheeses, olives, artichokes, roasted eggplant, capsicum and tomato
Seafood (mainly prawns)
Xmas day breakfast
Coffee and shortbread when we get up
Normally pork roast
Ham on the bone
Left over antipasto
Desserts are pavlova and triffle
Also have gingerbread biscuits
Xmas dinner ( if still needing to eat)
Boxing Day lunch
Butterflied lamb salad and leftovers
We have my brother and his fiancé coming on the 27th this year. Mums doing another feast for it too. I'm thinking of stopping eating now to fit it in
