Christmas Eve Menu

Every year since I can remember, we have a huge smorgasbord of food for Christmas Eve which is mainly comprised of appetizers and snacks. Our menu tonight looks like the following list. After thoroughly stuffing ourselves, we usually go out to look at lights in town and then come home to watch The Nativity before bedtime.

  • Sub sandwiches
  • Thinly sliced pears and brie cheese broiled on baguette sourdough
  • Veggies (carrots, celery, cucumber, & bell peppers) and ranch dip
  • Crackers (Wheat Thins, Triscuits, Ritz, and Club crackers)
  • Cheese (Smoked cheddar, smoked swiss, smoked gouda, pepper jack, farmers, and muenster)
  • Sliced beef from a beef log (to go with our crackers)
  • Ruffles potato chips and French onion dip
  • Homemade Chex Party Mix
  • Christmas cookies
  • Chocolate-walnut fudge from the neighbors
  • Gingerbread (cake-like)
Do any of your families have special Christmas Eve traditions? I must be off to prepare for our churches candlelight service. Since my sister is wearing a modern Downton Abbey inspired dress (an Ann Taylor find) I decided to wear my 1930s Christmas dress for the service. Now, to curl my hair or wrap it in a low bun?
