With the splendor, good cheer, and nostalgia that Christmas brings, we’re quoting the classic 1963 song “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” to introduce an extraordinary lineup of our 10 favorite Christmas dinner ideas and dishes! Herein you’ll discover everything to warm the bellies of “kid’s jingle belling” and the hearts at “happy meetings when friends come to call.” And, of course, you can count on holiday specialties for “parties for hosting” — and “marshmallows for toasting!” Time-honored traditional Christmas dinner recipes, too, tell of “the glories of Christmases long, long ago” as we celebrate the joy, love, and “mistletoeing” of the season with these delicious Christmas Day meal ideas.

From our table to yours. Merry Christmas, with all the trimmings!
