Sally: We have the traditional British Christmas dinner with turkey, roast potatoes, Brussels sprouts, which everyone loves, sage and onion stuffing, gravy.
Ruth: I'm vegetarian, so I don't eat turkey, but I do eat parsnips, roast potatoes, sprouts, etc. – all the trimmings.
Kerstin: ... then some nice desserts like rabanadas, I think it's French toast, sonhos and filhoses which is also like pastry, which is fried, very tasty.
Susy: In Cartagena, we have something that's called Posta negra Cartagenera, which is meat made with panela, with something that we get out of the sugar cane.
Tina: For our main part of the meal, we normally have a turkey, so roast turkey and huge one. I love a huge turkey so that you've got it for days afterwards.
