Fact of the Day: A Fishy Christmas Dinner


While most Americans think a Turkey or Ham as the main course for a classic Christmas dinner, that isn't so for some parts of the world. In Poland, Scandinavia, and other parts of Eastern Europe it is very common for fish to be served as the main dish.

Which is funny, because I hate how bland turkey comes out. I'd take a nice well seasoned fish any day.

I dunno about that... Christmas at home means pizza and spaghetti for my family.

I would do that if it was shellfish. That would be a nice change from turkey :)
