Thanksgiving may get all the glory, but the Christmas holiday isn't exactly a slouch when it comes to good food. Is there anyone who doesn't love traditional Christmas recipes like tender prime rib, candy-coated gingerbread houses or buttery sugar cookies? And unlike Thanksgiving, the Christmas recipe season lasts throughout the month of December, so you've got countless opportunities to indulge. Work party? Serve up a rum punch. Book club brunch? Turn it into a cookie exchange. Christmas Eve by the tree? Bring on the rich, creamy oyster stew. Of course, everyone looks forward to the main event: Christmas dinner, traditionally a large roast (crown beef or ham are always a hit) surrounded by hearty sides like mashed potatoes and glazed carrots. The only thing better is the Christmas cookies that follow.
