With the holiday season comes an undeniable feeling of warm and fuzzy familiarity and a lot of nostalgia: the soft twinkle of the Christmas tree, the lively crackling of potato latkes in hot oil, the comforting smell of turkey and brisket coaxing you to the dinner table. Whether you celebrate Christmas or Hanukkah, the festivities that make these days so special are bathed in traditions that vary from country to country, city to city, and family to family.
This holiday season, we wanted to know which classic films Americans planned to pop into their dusted-off DVD players, which foods graced their piled-high dinner plates, and what quirky celebrations would be unfolding in different corners of the country. And so, we surveyed just over 1,000 people who celebrate either Christmas or Hanukkah (or both!) to get to the bottom of the season’s most – and least – popular holiday pillars.

For Christmas and Thanksgiving, my family normally does turkey (smoked turkey for thanksgiving) or ham with mash potatoes and gravy, stuffing, corn/green beans, or green bean casserole, and pies. Then for New Years we do Kielbasa and Sauerkraut and ribs. Ribs were usually at Midnight. Now with my Dad gone it is different. I went to my brothers for Christmas and we had rigatoni and meat sauce. For New Years I watched the ball drop at home while my roommates were out and then we had kielbasa, sauerkraut and perogies for dinner.

A recent tradition that my mother has started is letting me watch basketball, all Christmas Day, on the big TV in the living room - as one of her Christmas gifts to me.

Every Christmas Eve, my family has gone out to a local Italian restaurant before opening our gifts. Then, on Christmas Day, it’s ham, tamales and mac and cheese. 💜
