For instance, children in Germany leave their shoes out on Christmas Eve and wake up to find small toys and other small Christmas treats inside.
In Italy, as well as many other European countries, a holiday tradition is to serve fish as a main course (we love these tilapia recipes), where here in the United States it's centered around turkey and ham.

Tips for Serving Christmas Desserts
A festive platter makes all the difference when serving a pretty dessert.
If you have people bringing desserts, you can stack them on small boxes you can find around the house for a layered look to your Christmas table.
Serve a few of these party appetizers before dessert, or have a rotating party where you go to different houses.
Enjoy these desserts and have a wonderful holiday!
