One food you can’t wait to be on the table on Christmas day
I'm from California so our Christmas traditions might appear a bit odd…my mother always makes tamales (a Mexican dish) on Christmas eve. They're quite fussy to make, but absolutely delicious.

I've never had a snowy Christmas before, I'd love to spend it somewhere properly wintry!
