Christmas is approaching, and families all across the world are gathering for a family supper on Christmas Day. However, different civilizations around the world have extremely diverse Christmas meals. These Christmas dinners are typically recipes that our mothers or grandmothers cooked for us as children. During Christmas, most of us cook and serve these dinners at our own tables, adding a few of our own favorite specialties. These dishes don't have to be "fancy" or complicated to prepare just because it's Christmas; it's the memories of good moments spent sharing them that make them so wonderful.
