Christmas-Weihnachten-Noël- "a must" - ein Muss - un obligation"......


FR: Vous avez, chacun, vos propres traditions a Noël...mais voici les vôtres et celles des autres....des idées différente, peut être....

DE: Jede hat seinen eigene Traditionen fur Weihnachten, aber hier sind einige Vorschlage von anders wo....Neue Ideen vielleicht....

EN: Everybody has their own traditions at Christmas time, but here are a few new ideas for a change maybe......
*************
Impossible to ignore Christmas...! There will be so many things written about Christmas in the kitchen that I'm not going to pass a lot of time on it....just one little article - this one!
But....first of all, a couple of links to let you enter the world of others - around the world. Maybe you're looking for something different this year.....
Here is one which takes you on a World tour of.....Christmas menus...all over the place
http://www.theworldwidegourmet.com/traditions/christmas-recipes/christmas-italy-marchesi/  (Just go to the button "Countries")
Then another one that'll do the same thing - just differently....
http://www.internationalrecipes.net/t/World_Christmas_Recipes/1 (this one has a list of countries on the main page)
These two links are in English, but just by "googling"  "Menu Weihnachten" you'll find thousands of things in German, or "Menu de Noel" for the French suggestions.....
***********
Of course, everyone know the traditional mental image of Christmas time, but not everybody wants it, nor can have it. Personally, I can't imagine celebrating Christmas somewhere on a sun drenched beach...wouldn't seem right at all...others fly away to do exactly that, and even others don't know anything different!...There are even certain celebrations that English people could only say "shocking" to..........and by the look on the ladies faces, this looks rather real.....
In any case, no matter where you celebrate it, you're going to eat too much, probably drink too much - you may even be ill from "over-indulgence" - but just say (like millions of others) it's only once a year, and a "good resolution" will be made in a weeks time.
Won't work, of course, but it'll make you feel better!
Of course some of us - well some of you - either won't bother, or will feel that it is all beyond you, and just give up.....Don't worry, you won't be ...on your own!
Maybe I could make some little suggestions.....
1. Don't forget to take the Turkey out of the freezer - even better, buy a fresh one!
2. Don't overcook it - cook it 30 minutes less than suggested. You CAN always put it back in to cook it longer, but once overcooked, not only is it dry, but there is no remedy! Can't go backwards...! This is way overcooked......try covering it with aluminium and "brown it off" only in the last 15-20 minutes...
3. Get someone else to carve it.....you've got other things to do, and anyway you don't want to look an idiot....again!..Grandad's are ideal for this sort of job....!
4. The drinks - if you let "hubby" and "Uncles" sort that out, as usual, you risk only having half filled bottles on the table, but two (or more) highly inebriated, but in good mood, people sitting around...Grandad won't be pleased - he'd prefer to have done that than carve the Turkey...!
5. Make sure you've allotted the washing up to the kids and other useless appendages...Time they did something apart from throwing ripped present paper all over, and beating hell out of the drum that some nut gave as a present...! AND....keep your eye on wherever they are towards the end of the meal....they have a habit of sliding away somewhere....
6. From start to finish guard your food....Cats adore Christmas - turkey and cheese, creamy cakes, all just lying there on the kitchen table - and nobody in sight....!  Even dogs and other "pets" can rapidly reap havoc on your festive table.....
*******
Just respecting a few little rules, and you'll have a really enjoyable time....
....cleaning up!
Happy Christmas to all my readers,,,,,,I'll be back before new year.......!
