25 of the Best Festive Finger Foods for the Christmas and New Year Holidays!
For me, the Festive Season is mostly synonymous both party food and with friends and relatives popping in (sometimes unexpectedly!) I always feel the need to feed people or at least offer “picky bits” when they come over!
This is obviously not a problem when it’s a scheduled visit, but on the odd occasion that people do drop by unexpectedly, I find myself scrabbling around in fridge and the cupboards and usually end up presenting something really random to my bewildered guests!
