Christmas foods are often rich in tradition and taste. Whether it's the wonderful Christmas drinks, like egg nog or apple cider (don't forget glogg too!), or the delicious candy canes dangling from the Christmas tree (so tempting), the holiday foods on this list are meant to thrill our taste buds and make us remember great Christmases of old, too.
Christmas meals, much like Thanksgiving, include a lot of excellent side dishes. Whether it's mashed potatoes with creamy gravy or a candied sweet potato dish that won't soon be forgotten, the sides are almost as important as the main dishes. And yes, the Christmas desserts can't be missed: apple pies, pecan pies and sweet potato pies are a long-standing holiday dessert worth waiting for, so don't forget to save room.
Let's talk fruit cake, shall we? The much maligned fruit cake is either a Christmas favorite or a Christmas nightmare, depending on who you ask. Some people do actually *like* fruit cake, so if you are one of them, vote loudly and proudly.
