Christmas brunch ideas and recipes

The best part of Christmas celebrations is enjoying family and friends.

If you had turkey for Thanksgiving, fixing another feast can leave us exhausted after having spent weeks shopping, wrapping, decorating and sending cards.

Serving brunch at 10 o’clock gives time to finish up the preparations that were started the night before such as egg strata and a fruit tray.

Remove muffins from tins and cool on wire racks. Muffins are best when baked shortly before serving, but can be kept in airtight containers overnight. Asking your guests to bring a variety of breads will relieve you of one time-consuming job. Set the table the night before so that you can pop the egg dishes into the oven in the morning, then sit down with a cup of coffee as you relax before your guests arrive.

A simple, unhurried meal lends itself to sharing stories of Christmas memories. While the dishes are being cleared away, put on Christmas music so everyone can sing along. Then have everyone gather around the Christmas tree to listen to the story of Christ’s birth. The children may like to dress in costumes to portray Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and the wise men in a tableau as the story is read.

Children enjoy handing out the presents, but they probably should be encouraged to do it slowly, as it allows time for all to enjoy seeing each individual gift.
