Ours doesn't drastically change much from Christmas to Christmas.
I normally buy things in bulk, but for Christmas specific stuff, I normally buy a few things a week in the months leading up to Christmas.
Breakfast- Christmas shaped pancakes, eggs, bacon, croissants and fruit.
Lunch- buffet of Prawns, warm chicken, turkey, cold ham, salads, vegies and dessert of cold rock style ice cream, home made chocolate mousse and pudding.
Dinner- if we're hungry is leftovers.

Breakfast at my grandparents - ham on toast Same thing there every year since I was born.
Lunch is at our house - Roast lamb, pork and turkey, roast vegetables, prawns, plum pudding, trifle (gross!), mousse, icecream.
Dinner at our house again - leftovers.
Boxing day - repeat at my inlaws

Breakfast - we just start grazing. Might be some fruit or might be chips, coloured popcorn (was a staple as kids), biscuits etc. it not very healthy haha.
Lunch - Ours rarely varies. Cold leg of ham, roast chook, prawns, salad, fruit platter and pavlova.
Dinner - if we can still fit food in its the leftovers from lunch.
If I have time I make a gingerbread house too. If I don't have time to do the house, then just gingerbread biscuits.

I usually go all out cooking for the family but it will just be hubby and myself this year with maybe a visit from sis before her night shift starts. So I plan to spread somethings out over the week so we can still enjoy most of the norm without wastage

We are at Dhs for Christmas this year. I've only had one with them in the last seven years - I think they do roast lunch, no idea what else.
If we were at my parents we start on Xmas eve. We have a huge antipasto and crusty Italian bread for dinner.
On Xmas day we start with special coffee and shortbread for breaky (very special treat). We have ham, roast pork and generally roast chicken for lunch with heaps of sides. Dinner, if you can eat, is leftovers. We also have snacks during the day.
