Irish cuisine
Tom Smith

Really.  The only Irish cooking I remember is that it was a custom in my family gotten from my Irish grandmother to serve both oyster stew and clam chowder as the Christmas eve meal.  Why this should be an Irish custom, I don't know.  I remember thinking my grandmother was a pretty good cook.

I'm in my mid-sixties and my parents always served Oyster Stew on Christmas Eve, too.
When I became an adult I tried to carry on a tradition I didn't understand but, after a few years, had to conclude I really hated Oyster Stew. One more tradition bit the dust.

Christmas Vigil is one of the days on which we mackerel-snappers snapped our mackerel. Poles and Italians had special fish-type dinners.
