The Ultimate Easy Christmas Appetizer Recipe Roundup
Appetizers are the opening ceremony of Christmas. Christmas in my family is usually spent with people piling into one house, arms filled with copious amounts of wine, and stacking a bunch of casserole dishes on the counters. As everyone throws their coats into the always cold guest bedroom, we gather around the massive spread of appetizers, shoveling food into our mouths while catching up on all things from the last year. It sets the tone for the night to come.
Appetizers are the first point of gathering for most families during the holidays. They are usually enjoyed mindlessly while chatting, or as a way to get out of a conversation with that one awkward family member who can't take a hint.
