It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas is a time of giving and being reconnected with your loved ones. College students coming home, grandparents visiting from out of town, or family friends spending it together what better way to reconnect than through eating. Yup, eating food or as some call it, communion. Just sitting down and enjoying a nice meal surrounded by the ones you love most.

There’s many traditional foods to eat at Christmas. All families are different but one thing each family might have in common with others is having traditional foods.

“I love having eggplant parmigiana, we always have a lot of pasta and fish because my family is Italian and we do the seven fish dinner” said Joie Argenio, who is a senior.

Along with tasty entrees Christmas brings some of the best sweets and desserts.

Argenio shared her favorite sweet, “It’s this Lebanese sweet called baklava.”

“My favorite Christmas treat would have to be peppermint bark” said Rameesha Muhammad who is a senior.

“The tradition that goes into making peppermint bark with family and friends and giving it to random people it’s a fun easy treat to make but has a meaning behind it” said Muhammad.

Maybe it’s not the food that matters but what it does. It brings people together. It allows us to share the holidays with the ones we love most.
