It’s a little over a week until Christmas, and it’s hard to contain my excitement at the thought of the feast we will experience as a result. For my family which leans heavily on my father’s Polish side for tradition this time of year, that means Polish breakfast on Christmas morning, complete with babka, eggs and kielbasa, and some other less Polish things that have become family staples, such as Doubletree Chocolate Chip Cookies and Shrimp Scampi on Christmas Eve. I’m sure I’ll ┬ábe posting on some of these things over the next few days, but I’m more interested in what Christmas means to your family! What are some of your recipes and traditions? If you aren’t Christian, what are some winter-time traditions and foods your family has?

We at The American Recipe Project are committed to exploring the cultural intersections between food, family, and history for all Americans, but we can’t do it without your help! Please help our research continue and give us amazing stories like the ones you see in our webisodes (! Your story and recipes are important, share them here:
