Do you have a tradition for what you eat on Christmas morning?

My parents are staying with us for the festivities and I wanted to prepare something nice for them, i.e. muffins etc.

Coffee cup in hand for dh & myself for the present opening. No breakfast for the kids as they're just eaten lots of chocolate from their stocking - plus no time as busy with their new things!

I'm surprised at all these, we don't do anything special for breakfast, what ever people want so a boiled egg or bacon sandwich probably. Eww at Champagne first thing too, no way could I do it, I'd be asleep by midday even on 1 glass.

DCs have asked for bacon and cheese bagels for breakfast!!! Will have to do it i suppose. Must say that we let the DCs have their stockings befoe breakfast but then nothing else till they have eaten all their breakfast!!

HA! You big bunch of LIARS!! grin

Salmon, bagels, champagne, pancakes, caviar, quail eggs....

You don't fool me

You dive head first into the Roses and when there's nothing left but the strawberry creams, you chomp on the mixed nuts until lunch!

salmon and champagne indeed.

growing up w always had croisants (don't know why), and now we make a birthday cake for Jesus on Christmas eve, and eat it for breakfast. Kids love it - cake for breakfast makes them think its Christmas

I like them and I know someone who makes them without the dried cranberries to good effect. They smell lovely!! HTH
