Wot no Christmas thread on 'ere?

Well here's one. Happy Christmas peeps.

Just popped in to see how you all are, it being that time of year, and it's nice to see some familiar names. Hope you are all faring well, and have a healthy and lucky 2024.

I did look Rosemary, but since my eyes don't do the time warp thing I didn't see a thread that you posted the following day. For which I can only apologise.

Onwards and upwards, and Happy New Year to you and all the forumites. Keep up the good work

Ha, ha, not sure what has happened. Your thread did not show up on my screen until after I had put my thread on, oh the joys of the internet!!! . As you said, time warp thingy. . I should have put some smilies to emphasize that I was having a bit of fun with you.

Have a great 2024.

Yes, thanks! A Joyeuse Fête at DD2's in Lyon, with gastronomical (albeit mainly veggie), cultural (3 museum visits), and sporty (descent from La Fourvière and Croix Rousse on foot) delights!
(I do look in every day, but haven't contributed much recently....)

Talking of gastronomy, what do members generally eat at Christmas and New Year, and when? Christmas Eve or Christmas Day? New Year's Eve or 1st Jan?
Personally, I can't stand/digest traditional French fare, except for smoked salmon, and thankfully OH couldn't either. Oysters, shell-fish, crustaceans, foie gras, chestnuts, bûche,.... were never for us. Unfortunately a typical British Christmas Dinner didn't ever go down well with OH, so we always made up our own different-from-usual meals.
If in-laws were here, we made an effort with the menus and threw in the Christmas Eve Réveillon as an extra, otherwise the main meals were (still are) always at lunch time on D-Day.
So, do you continue to eat a good old British Christmas Dinner, pud and all, or have you been converted to feasts à la française?

Confit de canard here tomorrow, although here is actually Wales.
Earlier this year I spent 4 months down in the Lot and I stocked up while I was there, so one way and another duck has been a feature of the menu during 2023.
We're thinking a late lunch. Our ageing digestions are finding it increasingly hard to cope with heavy meals in the evening.
Christmas Day was a traditional Estonian cold table (him being half Estonian, it's what he always does). Various fish, cold meats, rosolje, breads etc, Complete with vodka and again, a late lunch.
