Halloween is scary whereas Christmas is cheerful and joyful. One classic movie by Tim Burton called the Nightmare Before Christmas attempts to merge Christmas with Halloween. This film, the Nightmare Before Christmas, met with success as people love both Halloween and Christmas. The star of the Nightmare Before Christmas is an animated character called Jack Skellington. After the Nightmare Before Christmas where Jack failed to scare the people of the Christmas Town, Jack Skellington developed a fan base.
The Nightmare Before Christmas proved that the spirit of Christmas is undeniable and is stronger than all the ghouls and goblets that Halloweentown can provide. People in Christmas Town celebrates Christmas with joy in Christmas lights and among Christmas trees. Christmas Songs are unstoppable and Christmas spirits cannot be subdued.

Traditional Christmas Dinner (continued)
Another important addition to your Traditional Christmas Dinner. Most people prefer the whole berry cranberry sauce.
Some stuffing will make your Traditional Christmas Dinner much more special. There are many types of Christmas dinner stuffing such as Turkey stuffing or cornbread stuffing. You can use whichever ones because they all look similar and taste similar.
Another nice addition to your Traditional Christmas Dinner. Dinner rolls are very easy to bake in the oven.
In the US, Christmas dinner dessert is usually pumpkin pie or pie of some sort. In the UK and many other countries that follow the UK, Christmas pudding is very special for Christmas dinner. Christmas pudding is similar to rum cake with less rum. In the US, it is hard to find English Christmas pudding but in many countries, not only in the UK, you can buy them in grocery stores and then microwave them. It's easy and they taste very delicious.
Traditional Christmas dinner varies from country to country. However, in the United States, England and many other countries, the traditional Christmas dinner consists of the following dishes.
Turkey is very important for traditional Christmas dinner, especially in the US. About a week or more before Christmas, people will shop for their turkey. The larger the turkey is the longer it needs to thaw in the refrigerator. Thawing big Christmas turkey could take over a week so it's best to read the instruction and buy your turkey in advance.
In England, roast potatoes are very common for Christmas dinner, along with Yorkshire pudding. However in the US, most people make baked potatoes or mashed potatoes instead.
A complete traditional Christmas dinner has a dish or two of vegetables. This can be peas, long beans, Brussels sprouts, carrots or other types of vegetables. You can boil the veggie or steam the veggie according to your preferences.
Don't forget plenty of gravy for your turkey. A lot of people cannot eat turkey without gravy and cranberry sauce. While most grocery stores order tons of turkey for the holiday and they are not likely to run out of turkey, they could be out of the good gravy mixes. So, shop for your gravy early and buy plenty of it because you would be sorry if you run out.
