Chinese Restaurant Sign Thanks Jews for Eating There on Christmas

Jewish Christmas Cuisine

Growing up on Long Island there was a Chinese food place on every other corner, with a pizza parlor in between. And not a lot to do on Christmas Eve, or Christmas Day, if you weren't celebrating the holiday. With a large Jewish population on the Island, the Chinese food places got heavy traffic those evenings.

My family celebrated Christmas, though, a tradition Kelly and I keep today. We like good food, too. We’re enjoying a modified version of the non-traditional Christmas Eve/Christmas Day feast here tonight: Chocolate Martinis, followed by take-out Thai.

Enjoy your feast this Christmas Eve!
