Christmas food around the world

In Latvia, the Christmas meal is cooked brown peas with a pork sauce, a selection of small pies, cabbage and sausage.

In Transylvania, stuffed cabbage is served on Christmas Eve, and then eaten again the next day for lunch.

One traditional Christmas meal in the Czech Republic is fried carp and potato salad.

In the Philippines, dinner is eaten at midnight on 24 December ("Noche Buena"). Ham, queso de bola (a ball of cheese), and tsokolate (hot cocoa) are popular.

Christmas dinner in Slovakia includes oplatky, a plate of thin waffles with honey and garlic, cabbage soup with prunes and sausage, carp and potato salad.

A traditional option in Norway is lutefisk, made from dried white fish, though pork ribs are also popular.
