While we're used to all the trimmings of a turkey, stuffing, and roast potatoes, not forgetting the sprouts, the rest of the world aren't quite as on board with our 24-hour carb fest that is the traditional Christmas dinner.
In fact, with the exception of the US who has a fairly similar approach to the UK, other countries eat a much different kind of dinner. Some don't even have their main meal on Christmas Day, with many opting for Christmas Eve as their main celebratory meal.
In this infographic below, created by Bookatable.com, you can see all the alternative Christmas dinners from around the world, and just how different they are to ours.
In Fiji, you could have a garlic and spice-filled Chicken, which sounds delicious. But over in Bulgaria they usually spend time fasting around the festive period, so instead of a big meal they go small and eat a healthy vegetarian meal of spicy vegetable stew, which they eat on Christmas Eve.
Other countries that opt for the night before Christmas dinner include Argentina, Brazil and Peru. While Peru and Brazil serve up a take on a turkey dish, Argentinians can be found munching on a dish of veal coated in a creamy tuna-flavoured sauce.
Perhaps the most unusual meal comes from Iceland whose inhabitants can be found sampling a dish of Mattak, which is whale skin complete with fatty blubber and 'kivak' - the raw flesh of Arctic auk birds that have been buried in seal skin for months until completely decomposed (er, yum?).
Another strange one, although perhaps a little more palatable, comes from the Japanese who, thanks to a very successful marketing campaign in the Seventies, eat Kentucky Fried Chicken for Christmas dinner. Diners apparently order their buckets of chicken in advance to avoid the queues. Well, that's one way of justifying eating fast food over the holiday period.
