The Logan family had a feast for Christmas dinner, which they shared with the Averys.  "The meal lasted for two hours through firsts, seconds, and thirds, talk and laughter, and finally dessert".  Cassie actually reveals what they are going to eat a few pages before she tells about the meal itself when she describes the delicious smells that permeate the house the day before Christmas.  She lists "sweet-potato pies, egg-custard pies, and rich butter pound cakes...a gigantic coon...baked in a sea of onions, garlic, and fat orange-yellow yams...and a choice sugar-cured ham brought from the smokehouse" (Chapter 7).
