What are you having for Christmas dinner? In most families, Christmas dinner is a big meal and takes a while to prepare. Whether it is ham, turkey, chicken, or something else, mothers around the world take a lot of time to make the feast a special time.
Based on a gathered survey of Eisenhower students, some of the most common foods eaten on Christmas are ham, turkeys, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, chicken, stuffing, cranberry sauce, fruit cake, pies, and pumpkin rolls.
