Planning Christmas dinner? If you’re making ham, you’ll need some side dishes! Here are the best side dishes to serve with ham for Christmas for kids!

Christmas is a busy time. There is a lot going on – church services, parties, presents, celebrations. And most of those things involve food.

With Christmas falling so close to Thanksgiving, I know that a lot of families like to mix up the menu and serve a ham on Christmas.

My husband and kids LOVE a honey baked ham. I love that you can buy it good to go and just slice and heat it. It makes the meal so much easier!

Anyways, planning a holiday meal can be complex, so today I wanted to help you to brainstorm side dish ideas for your Christmas ham.
