For a long time, we had just ham for our big family Christmas. However, one of my cousins married a Jewish guy, and we started serving a turkey and a ham. I was so relieved because I'm not particularly fond of ham. I don't know what will be served in the future, though, because that cousin is in the process of divorcing her husband.
At home, I make chicken tamales. I've only done it twice (last Christmas and around Easter), but I enjoy them enough that they're becoming a new tradition.
