Dear Almanac readers,
A week to go before Christmas, and we're thinking about food (what's new?).
Planning to bake a ham? Roast a goose? Make a beef rib roast? See our Christmas Dinner Recipes.
Attending or throwing a cocktail party? We've got Christmas Appetizer Recipes—from an easy cheese ball to stuffed mushrooms.
And check out George Washington's favorite concoction for celebrating Christmas at Mount Vernon. Holy smokes!

Fetched a cake fer little Jake,
And fetched a pie fer Nanny,
And fetched a pear fer all the pack
That runs to kiss their Granny!
