Christmas Party Snacks
    and Food ideas
Once again, the holiday season is
going full blast, Christmas is getting
closer by the day, and you are
thinking about throwing a Christmas
party for your close friends and family
or maybe for your youth group. One
of my favorite times as a youth
minster is inviting youth and church
members to my place for a Christmas

Planning for a Christmas Party?
Do you have everything planned out or
are you still looking for great party ideas
about locations, entertainment, drink,
games, and food? All of these are very
important things to consider because you
want everything to be perfect and who
would blame you for that. Of course,
perhaps the most important thing to think
about and get great ideas for is what you
will provide people with to eat at your
Christmas party. If you need activity ideas

Christmas Party Main Course
With any party and particularly a Christmas
party, the most important thing to figure out
is what you will serve as a main course
particularly if the party is going to be a dinner
style party. Different regions of the world
have main courses they serve for Christmas,
but just because you live somewhere do not
think you have to adhere to traditions there.
Of course, the old stand bye's like turkey,
lamb, and ham are always very popular
amongst diners. However, you may also want
to think about serving a goose, duck, or
maybe even something Italian like lasagna,
which are also favorites of the season.

Christmas Party Side Dishes
Side dishes are also going to be very
important to any Christmas feast and they
will have to mesh well with the main course
or main courses you decide to serve. With
most meals, mashed potatoes and sweet
potatoes are the main side dishes, but they
are not the only option available to you. You
really want to have contrast with what you
serve with the meal so look at serving
something like fresh made cranberry sauce,
candied yams, stuffing. Vegetables are also
necessary in a Christmas dinner and things
like green beans, spinach and even broccoli
are good choices and can be made more than
one way to give the meal diversity.
Christmas Party Desserts
Everyone's favorite part of a Christmas party
or meal is dessert, and boy there are lots of
ideas to choose from too. First off, let us look
at some pies ideas for your Christmas party or
meal. Pumpkin pie is of course the traditional
favorite and they are very tasty too. However,
you may want to think about serving a
strawberry rhubarb pie or a pecan pie both of
which are popular southern desserts served
at Christmas time. Cheesecake is a popular
dessert that is served at Christmas parties
and meals and can be made with different
fruit toppings and whipped cream.

Christmas Party Snacks
When throwing a Christmas party or meal
snack food is always a good thing to have
around so that people do not get hungry
while waiting for their dinner. If there is no
meal, but just a party snacks are a good idea
for a couple of reasons. The first reason is
that people like to eat good snacks over the
holidays and particularly sweets. Second, if
the guests happen to be drinking then snacks
will help absorb the alcohol in their system. A
couple of good snack ideas are Christmas
cookies such as sugar cookies and snack
mixes that contain thins like pretzels,
peanuts, and dried fruit.

Hopefully, this has given
you a few ideas for
planning the food and
snacks for your Christmas
Party. After all, one of h
best parts of any
Christmas Celebration is
the food!
