I've lived in different places in the South including Alabama for most of my adult life and have never heard of reversing the traditional turkey/ham arrangement. However, having a turkey and ham for Thanksgiving isn't unusual for a large crowd.
something I have noticed in the south... for thanksgiving its ham, for christmas its turkey. We always have turkey on thanksgiving and ham for christmas. several of dh's co workers told him that the opposite is how its done here, lol. is this true, or just depends on the how each person does it?
On Christmas Eve I'll be attending a dinner party that a friend holds every year. She provides the meat- this year it's prime rib- and the rest of us bring appetizers, side dishes, desserts, etc.
On Christmas day dinner will be with a friend and her mom.
I miss family holiday dinners so very much.
