  • We often have a combination of both. We prefer a turkey roll roast as it is moist compared to a turkey roasted – maybe I just am not good at cooking turkeys! We always have some cold seafood and salads with hot roast vegetables.



  • We have a cold lunch – saves heating up the house in summer and usually you can prepare most of it the day before so it’s just ready to go on Xmas day.



  • Lunch is great if everyone can turn up as it allows the evenings to relax a bit. Dinner is not always suitable when there are young children and they may need to go to bed early . We always had to be flexible because some of us have kids and some none , so it is based on the availability of others. Hot or cold doesn’t matter because everyone brings something so no one has to slave too much in the kitchen .



  • Never had cold, but sounds yummy!



  • Was wondering the same thing. Normally have the big roast but thinking of going for a lighter cold meal this year.



  • I love a bit of both, but I think it depends on your climate too, if it’s going to be a really hot day, I would be going for cold meats and salads, if it’s cooler roasts…..Christmas BBQ is always great too.



  • Hot and cold seems to be the way to go for all of the Silly Season! ;)



  • Hot and cold with every possible trimming and treat. Big bellies on Christmas Day!



  • we have a bit of hot, bit of cold. mix it up or not but enjoy the feast.



  • We also do a roast lunch & then use the left overs for dinner.
    We do a lamb, turkey, chicken & pork with potatoes, veg, salad & a ham.
    It is the highlight of my year.



  • We do a bit of everything- cold ham, hot turkey roll, seafood (prawns- nomm!) salads etc etc etc. Then leftovers for dinner :D



  • I grew up having a warm Christmas lunch. But now, with my own family, we have a big cold Christmas breakfast/brunch, and a warm special Christmas dinner.



  • We also have a hot lunch at Christmas,the traditional turkey,pork and lamb with veggies etc!
