In the USA my family always ate ham for Christmas. My boyfriend loves salmon, so we ended up eating that last year and now it's our tradition. I think it's funny that Japanese people think that American people eat chicken. They're always so shocked when they find out that we don't! Fried chicken is usually a summer food!
To CarolineYour words made me surprised!Is Fried chicken a summer food?
In Romania we have something called "sarmale", a mixt with rice and meat wrapped in cabbage foil. It's a tasty tradition and we eat them every Christmas.
