In Denmark we celebrate christmas on the 24th of december. In my family we start by sitting down to a nice christmas dinner. We normally have duck, brown potatoes (small white potatoes roasted in a mix of sugar and butter to give them a nice sweet caramel taste) White potatoes, red cabbage, potato chips and a nice rich sauce. Other traditional danish christmas food is ham, pork roast and goose.
Then we have dessert, we eat something called "risalamande" wich translated would mean rice with almonds. It's made of almonds rice porridge, cwhipped cream and vanilla. We have heated cherry sauce with it. it's tradition to put one whole almond into the finished dessert. Whoever finds the almond gets a present. I got it this year.
I would love to hear how you guys celebrate christmas.
