Some of my Christmas traditions are ones I've 'inherited' while others are my own. The next 3 traditions contain both.
4. A pineapple as a centre-piece for the sideboard and cut a couple of days after Christmas has been part of our family Christmas for as long as I can remember.
5. Afternoon tea. Years ago we would have a Christmas Day tea but as everyone grew older and Christmas dinner went on for much longer, tea was abandoned as there just wasn't time! What we now do is to have one day over the festive period when a full afternoon tea is the main meal of the day.
6. Salmon for New Year's Day. This is my recent addition to tradition and I've been doing it for about 5 years now. Before that, New Year's Day dinner was always roast meat. I particularly like fish so was keen to have a day dedicated to it. Actually, it doesn't have to be salmon; it just has to be a festive fish meal.
