Default A cross culture holiday dinner

This Christmas/Hannukah we are having a bunch of people around to share dinner:

One Agnostic
One Jewish American Princess
One Jewish Wikkan Dyke 5 Star Chef
Two Creationist Southern Baptists and their Daughter.
One Expat Parisian Englishwoman
One newly-wed couple who are going to cough up to their Southern Baptist family that they are pregnant.

Can anyone beat that for interesting dinner conversation ?

I'm missing Christmas dinner at my parents this year but round the table will be:

my parents
my brother (atheist)
his best friend, a Christian Iraqi and his new wife (also Christian Iraqi)
and my brother's ex-flatmate, a Thai lady

I'm sure there's going to be interesting conversation at the table this year.

Be very afraid!!!

Our Christmas Eve buffet gathering will be

One Aquarius
Two Aries
One Virgo
Two Gemini
Two Leo
Two Libra
One unknown
and a Jack Russell with attention deficit disorder !

My prediction: No water signs so it'll be a fairly unemotional affair.
Many fire and air signs, so plenty of hot air! Only one earthy person to talk sense, so most of us will be away with the fairies (though that'd be a miracle as it's a no alcohol "do")

I forgot to mention three Siamese Cats and the almost 2-year old Standard Poodle who is a cross between a puppy and an asshole.
