Brussel Sprouts (yes you read that right)
Jason Statham but if he can’t travel, Brad Pitt will have to do. :rofl:

love that! I literally laughed out loud. I agreed heartily with all of your choices, although I personally would put dogs lower on the list.

Brussels sprouts

The Brussels sprout is a member of the Gemmifera cultivar group of cabbages, grown for its edible buds. The leaf vegetables are typically 1.5–4.0 cm in diameter and resemble miniature cabbages. The Brussels sprout has long been popular in Brussels, Belgium, from which it gained its name.

They are delicious and I had the pleasure to harvest literally farm to table on a sit I did in Wales. it was a most gratifying experience.

Jason Statham is an ENGLISH actor from Shirebrook, UK a very well developed atypical ENGLISH male, a Cancer, 54 years young, who plays in heroic action thriller films both ENGLISH and American. He enjoys sharing photos of his dogs on Instagram.
He’s an alright mate.

And the Christmas day with family
I do not understand for the Brussels sprouts, they would not be on my list, nor on any list. Is this an anglo saxon tradition ?
Merry Christmas everybody

Cats & Dogs are a given
But I’m also in the Brussels Sprouts camp!

In fact I’ve got two HUGE bags to get through as we grew our own this year and cut 10 big sticks from the veggie patch before leaving for our house sit in Northern France!

Just got the first batch ready for Christmas Day Lunch but there will be lots of recipes involving brussels over coming days including Bubble & Squeak tomorrow, and a lovely brussels chili salad (grated raw sprouts are SOOO tasty)

Brussells Trivia for the Brits among us …

(Is it "Brussel sprouts" or "Brussels sprouts"? Three quarters get it wrong... | YouGov)

What about an apostrophe though :wink:

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!! :evergreen_tree:

Whouhaou ! I am very impressed by the number of people choosing Brussel’s sprouts !!
My choice :

  • Mince Pies (This year I cooked my own mincemeat for the first time thanks to THS a lovely OH coming back from UK bring me back real beef suet ! Yesss ! It makes me very happy -) my husband didn’t understand what I would cook with this kind of thing !!! )
  • Holiday
  • Pantomime (only been once in my life. I didn’t understand all of it but it was very exotic to me : looks like french theatre in 17th century when people were shouting, laughing and throwing potatoes on the stage !)
  • My special 4th would be Christmas markets in East of France (Alsacians are the most spectacular here in France ! Where you can have mulled wine and hot cider !)

Happy Christmas to you all !
