Christmas dinner has turkey, stuffing (sage and onion iirc), pigs in blankets, yorkshire pudding, roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, parsnips, peas, carrots, brussel sprouts, gravy, bread sauce, cranberry sauce and cranberry jelly usually. I don't have the cranberry sauce or jelly though.
Dessert is christmas pudding and custard.
OMG 10 days, can't wait for it again. Been waiting a whole year for this.

It's turkey for me. I'm a stickler for tradition

No starters for us usually xmas day...
Main: salmon with new potatoes and what ever veg seems suitable...usually changes!
We have our turkey dinner christmas eve as we have danish grandparents, and traditionally they used to eat their main xmas meal and open presents on christmas eve. So, not to be repetitive, we have salmon the next day. Yum.
Oh and christmas pudding for desert. But I hate the stuff so normally chocolate sponge for me!

It's just a normal dinner for me.
It's just an ordinary day but with lots of food in the table.
I like my christmas days when i was a kid, today is just a crappy day socializing with some of my stepdads family.
Usually, we have potatoes, chicken, pasta, mac&cheese and some pastries.
And whilst waiting for food all of them are watching the stupid football!!!

This year we're having venison as the main meal, due to one preferring chicken over turkey, another disliking [verging on hate, tbh] turkey, another liking turkey and the other's preference being fresh salmon - who has ****ing salmon on christmas day as a main? You English are weird.
However, I don't think I shall appreciate any of it due to the fact I'm working from this thursday right through to next thursday, eight ten-hour night shifts in a row.

An insane amount of chocolate, pretzels, cheese snack things and crisps.
Then dinner (no starter) - duck cos my mum hates turkey, potatoes, carrots, parsnips, swede, sprouts, peas, pigs in blankets and A LOT of stuffing cos it's the best part. All washed down with several bottles of wine.
No-one in my family (well, me, my mum and her boyfriend) like Christmas pudding so we have free fruit pie pilfered from the bakery I work at
Then a repeat of the morning's chocolate consumption, with various other types of liqour.

Breakfast is Buck's Fizz and smoken salmon with scrambled eggs
Throughout the morning we graze on wine and little nibbly things/ grapes
Starter is some form of salady thing (I know, salad on Christmas Day, utterly preposterous)
Main meal is turkey, pigs in blankets, roast potatoes, carrots, peas, broccoli, sprouts with pancetta and chestnuts, parsnips and sometimes swede
Pudding is the odd bit of yule log or a mince pie if anyone isn't in a food coma
Evening is little scraps of turkey with bread, cheese and wine (and chocolate, obviously)
This year I have Crabbies ginger beer too

Well, for breakfast it's ALWAYS a sausage sandwich after present opening. ALWAYS.
Then the usual christmas dinner with TURKEY.
