What alternatives have you had for your Christmas dinner?

This year i'm really considering having Mexican food on Christmas Day. So my question is...... Have you ever had an alternative Christmas dinner? did you feel like you had missed out? did it feel less Christmassy?
Bye the way I know I'm BU talking about Christmas in September Sorry. [santa]

@Whatwaswrongwiththatusername Camel... camel was a huge mistake. Tough as an old boot with the flavour to match.
I usually leave it up to mum but I have no idea what she's going to pick. Our favourite by far has been the year of the kangaroo very closely followed by the Rose veal year.
I suspect we'll have to start recycling one day but it's a very fun tradition! I recommend! My DP and his kids have really come on board with it and dsd tells everyone at school. She liked ostrich that we had the year before.

My mum had never once cooked Christmas dinner. Boxing Day would be a mega roast, but never ever on Christmas Day.
We always have a massive cooked breakfast (with hash browns, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, sausage, bacon, toast, fried bread and black pudding) then the rest of the day for as long as I can remember it’s been “feed yourselves” so we would have cereal, toast, sandwiches, soup. Anything easy and quick really. I now follow my mum who says “it’s my Christmas Day too.” And if hubby wants a roast, he has to cook it, otherwise there’s no roast!
