Family Food Traditions

Feeling nostalgic for Christmastime (already!)are today, I got to thinking about food-related traditions my family has. My mom has a Mirro cookie press from the '50s at least, and every Christmas, she'd make red and green spritz cookies with almond extract. It wasn't Christmas without them. Those, and her homemade cranberry bread! Mmmmm.

What are some food traditiions in your family? Not limited to Christmas, obviously, but any holiday/occasion or just anytime!
