Christmas dinner at the South Pole
Well, Christmas dinner is a big deal at the Pole, lots of folks dress up, and there's a trio of meal sittings with a set table, and yule logs burning (on the overhead monitors). The meal was Beef Wellington, lobster tails, a couple of different mashed potatoes, and stacks of desserts on trays coming around. The science grantees buy the wine for the whole station, and volunteers keep the wine glasses full. Before dinner there are appetizers in the hall outside, duck on a quacker, baked brie, scallops, etc.
