Chinese Take-Out at Home

For many Jewish families like mine, Christmas Day is a day for eating Chinese food and heading to the movies. But, I also had a friend who celebrated Christmas with his family every year by cooking a big meal inspired by the cuisine of another country (Thai one year, Argentinian the next) and watching old movies all day. I like the quirkiness of both customs.

It may seem unconventional, but Chinese take-out for Christmas is borderline traditional. Stay cozy and make your favorite take-out dishes at home.
