Another thing I would like to point out is that you can make this stew at any time of year, even though I named it Christmas Stew. I did it only because I made it for Christmas last year and I will be making it this year again. My whole family loves it, so it looks like it is our new family tradition.

My background is Eastern European therefore the flavor is based on our type of cuisine, similar to Goulash. Nevertheless, feel free to adjust it to your pallet, by adjusting the spices and herbs. For example, I have added some Marjoram, which I love since I was a child because my grandmother used to cook with it a lot. However, I know it is not a very common herb used in North America.
