    I think it has be a light meat; i.e. not beef or lamb.

    Also ensure it isn't fish.

    Anything else you should be good with big_smile

    Personally I would suggest Chicken

    Goose. Rarely eaten these days but not as dry as turkey. Duck good for the same reasons - but we (our family) do tend to eat that through the year

    You can do the whole Christmas dinner with chicken if there are not too many to feed, or the cost of a turkey is too high. I think the best alternative is beef. Traditionally in the UK, you would have had either beef or goose. Do you fancy a goose this Christmas?

    Latin Americans prefer roasted pork. It's not Christmas without it, as sides rice and beans. Can't wait to roast ours.

    My family eats turkey on Thanksgiving, but when it comes to Christmas, ham is the main course.  Duck is also a good alternative.

    There are so many alternatives at Christmas...duck, goose, ham, pork, lamb, prime rib, cornish hens, quail....I guess it depends on how closely you adhere to your own tradition? I know people who have celebrated with lobster and other seafood dishes.

    A honey glazed ham with pineapples over them... smells so delicious coming out the oven... Also chicken, beef, pork, or even cheese tamales are a good dish although the meat is stuffed it is still a perfect dish for Christmas...

    I love ham for Christmas dinner!  Some people like goose, duck, or chicken as well.
