Christmas is one of the most widely celebrated festivals around the world. Many schools and offices shut down towards the year-end to ring in the festivities with aplomb. You cannot take a stroll around the market without running into Christmas trees, fairy lights, hollies and men decked in Santa costumes, and we are not complaining. But in the midst of all the splendour, all that we can think about right now are the scrumptious Christmas treats. Feasting forms an essential part of Christmas celebrations.
Here are 9 Christmas foods, we cannot imagine Christmas without.
1. Plum Cake
What's Christmas without biting into a fruity and yummy plum cake. The cake mixing for the Christmas staple begins months in advance. The cake is made with alcohol-infused fruits like grapes, currants, raisins or prunes and nuts. You can easily find non-boozy plum cakes in the market too.
2. Gingerbread Cookies
The legends say that the richly-spiced cookies helped people fight the chill as they delved in the Christmas celebrations. Many families still prepare these scented and flavoured cookies at home around Christmas.
