Holiday Foods Around the World

December 14th 2021

This time of year, different traditions, holidays, and foods are found all around the world. Can you guess which country celebrates December with each of these foods?

LYCHEES

With the bright red skin and dark green leaves, these tropical fruits are actually quite festive and sweet. 

You might be able to spot these fruits in your local Price Chopper so you can celebrate like Madagascar.

FRIED CHICKEN

While Christmas is not an official holiday, it is celebrated with Fried Chicken and some American customs in this country. In fact, Fried chicken is so popular many families have to put in orders months ahead of time or wait in line for hours to get theirs.

Get some Chopper Chicken to celebrate Christmas like they do in Japan.

GRILLED PRAWNS/SHRIMP AND PAVLOVA

Citizens of this country break out the barbecue and enjoy fresh, light dessert and fruits! We often associate December and winter with hearty meals, but this country has Christmas during their warm, summer months!

Because Christmas happens in summer, Australia traditionally celebrates with lighter fare.  

BEETROOT SOUP WITH MUSHROOM DUMPLINGS

Christmas meals in this country are typically 12 courses, all meat-free. One of the signature dishes of this feast is a beetroot soup (borscht) with mushroom-filled dumplings.

Will you dig in to a large, multi-course meal like they do in Poland?
