    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):

    Turkey
    Ham
    Vegie steak wraps
    Risotto
    Cold rice salad
    Salad
    Bread rolls
    Potato salad
    Prawns

    Trifle
    Brandy baskets, ice cream, maple syrup and grated chocolate
    Mini mars bars Christmas pudding
    Fruit cubes
    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.

    Breakfast:
    Bacon and eggs on toast
    Coffee (those that drink it)

    Lunch: (hot)
    Roast chicken, turkey, and pork
    Roast potato and pumpkin
    Honey steamed carrots
    Steamed Cauliflower, peas, corn cobs
    Gravy and cheese sauce

    Dinner: (cold)
    Left over meats
    Ham
    Pasta salad
    Potato salad
    Coleslaw
    Tossed salad

    ......
    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

    Xmas eve
    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

    Xmas pre-lunch
    Dips
    Nuts
    Bikini

    Xmas lunch
    Normally pork roast
    Ham on the bone
    Turkey
    Potato salad
    Tossed salad
    Left over antipasto
    Prawns
    Desserts are pavlova and triffle
    Also have gingerbread biscuits

    Xmas dinner ( if still needing to eat)
    Leftovers

    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
