Bertie, not yet, Love. No goodies out there to eat here yet, but plenty of decorations to be purchased. UGH! Just a little too soon for me.

When you say Christmas cake, do you mean Christmas Stollen, the traditional German bread eaten on Christmas morning, sugar-coated and containing raisins, rum, nuts, etc.??

Can you tell me, please, what is the most typical Christmas meal in English-speaking countries?
(I have heard only about Christmas plum pudding.)

ok dagmar in irealand and the uk you have a starter of what ever you want follwed by roast turkey with stuffing , boiled ham vegtables , roast potatoes and brown gravy . followed by plumb pudding with custard and in ireland you pour some whiskey on the pudding as you are about to eat it . also just after you have boiled the pudding just as you are about to serve it you pour whiskey on the whole thing and set it alight . the whiskey burns off . it looks lovely too !!!!
peace love and ice cream .

Christmas Eve dinner in our family has always been like another Thanksgiving meal and then leftovers are eaten Christmas Day if we are not eating at someone else's house--Roasted turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce,mashed white potatoes, sweet potatoes, sauerkraut, one or two green veggie dishes ( one is often a string bean casserole,with mushroom gravy). Many people opt for this in a more simplified way, or eat ham. We often have ham too, if someone wants it, but if not, have it for New Year's Eve and New Year's Day.

Now if you're talking desserts, I could go on forever and ever!!!! LOL.

On both accounts, most people continue family traditons which could very possibly be completely different from what we do.
