    Any holiday that you consider to have a "main" meal in it... So I guess
    you'll be having SPAM for your "main" meal today (or maybe even all of
    them)? hehe

    Depends on your beliefs; this time of year the "main" ones would be Easter,
    Passover and Ostara. Pick the one, or none, that fits you best.

    Having never cooked a holiday meal in my life, I had to say my answer
    not in list.
    I have always been invited out or eaten in a resto.

    Let's just call it a huge phobia of cooking for guests and people know
    it.

    We'll remember that in the dinner party thread.
    FYI: dinner parties do not have to stress you out.

    Thank you, Barb.

    I had my *main* "Holiday" meal for dinner last night, about 6:15
    PM... roast beef, baked yams in jackets, asparaguys. Will have cold
    roast beef on rye tonight (w/ketchup & mayo)... defrosting beef
    'shroom barley zupp for tomorrow, and may make hash from the rest of
    that roast... just gotta fry up a big mess o' diced spuds and onyuns.
    With five fluffy felines a large roast doesn't go far.

    And then there are the kinks when the kids want/need/hafta go to the
    girl/boyfriend's house or the Inlaws also...Juggling between families
    gets hard.

    Add a bunch of divorces in that mix and you're lucky to know who is
    even going to show up much less when.

    Passover, we sit down at around 7, eat around 8-8:30.

    Most folks I know who do Easter eat sometime in the afternoon, between
    1-3.

    Oesatara friends eat after circle.

    And whether or not we're working that holiday, and what shift.

    Ain't that the freakin' truth. <sigh> I've worked every Holiday for the
    past several years. Working night shift helped, but it did put a strain
    on my sister and brother in law to try to have the meal ready by noon or
    so. They are not morning people. I always was willing to help cook of
    course!

    In my family of origin, it's always been 3pm, so that's what it is for
    me, mostly. Christmas Eve dinner was at regular dinner time this year
    ("regular dinner time" = 7pm in this house), because I didn't want the
    particular guests we were having to be hanging around all day. I wanted
    them in, fed, and out. And good riddance. :-)

    I'm sorry that you were obligated to invite over people you felt that
    way about. I'd be particularly annoyed if it was a ruining a holiday
    celebration. To date, I haven't been in that position.

    I'm so lucky that I have worked office jobs almost exclusively since I
    was young, so I almost always have weekends and holidays off. I don't
    actually care about the holidays, being a heathen and all, but I've had
    partners who cared from time to time, and it's been nice to be able to
    be available.

    My sister and her family (brother in law and 2 nephews) have moved back
    here into town after living in Arizona for 3 years. I'd like to be able
    to spend more holidays with them. I'm concerned at the moment as the
    BIL is unemployed and job hunting, and may have to move to find
    lucrative work. :-(

    I know that I was lucky to find a new job after trying to nail one down
    for 9 weeks and was only unemployed for 6 weeks, probably due to the
    fact that I _wanted_ to work night shift and was willing and able to
    work weekends and holidays. It's hard to find people that actually want
    to work nights... plus I knew somebody at the facility that I'd worked
    with previously. She will actually be my supervisor as she's the
    assistant lab manager. <g>

    Things are tough right now but I do so love having family here so close
    by!
