I like more the way we celebrate Chritsmas here. The 24th December we have dinner with family and/or friends. We usually eat coold food because we are on summer, and it's 30+ but we also like eating barbecue! for dessert we like icecream and fruit salad. Then at midnight we have toast, we kiss and hug each other saying Merry Christmas! and we open gifts. We have fireworks show then we stay at the table drinking sider, champagne, eating almonds, nuts, panettone, etc. The next day people usually have lunch together with the relatives they couldn't see the last day. We do the same for New year but without open gifts.
Mike think my Christmas are better and he wants to try it
