Holiday Food Traditions

Starting tonight at sundown, Jews around the world will observe Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, with prayer and fasting. At the end of the holiday, it is tradition to break the fast with a family meal.

Have you ever noticed how important food can be to a holiday? Often times, it manages to take center stage and overshadow the day at hand; however, what is a holiday if you can’t enjoy it with family and food?

Whether you have to have a certain food for your birthday dinner or a specific brand of ham or turkey for your Easter, Thanksgiving (Butterball!), or Christmas holiday, it's food that makes or breaks your celebration.

Today, I'd love to hear about what foods and brands have to be on your table for important holidays, festivities, and gatherings. Tell me about your family traditions and the foods they involve by leaving a comment below.
