Along with its multi-cultural background, the United States of America has many diverse traditions and ways of celebrating Christmas. Many practices are comparable to those found in the United Kingdom, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, and Mexico.
Turkey or ham with a cranberry sauce is the typical holiday dish for Western European households. Turkey with fixings, kielbasa (a Polish sausage), cabbage dishes, and soups are popular among Eastern European families, whereas lasagne is famous among Italian families.
Popcorn strung on a string had been used by some Americans to decorate their Christmas trees. Making and eating gingerbread houses is also a favorite Christmas activity! In the United States, eggnog is a “traditional” Christmas drink, even though it originated in the United Kingdom.
