This is a particularly family-focused time in Portugal with a big meal on Christmas Eve, gifts exchanging, then on to Midnight Mass. On Christmas Eve the generations of the family gather together in front of the nativity scene, the presepio, to celebrate. A traditional supper might consist of boiled bacalhua (salt cod), with boiled potatoes and cabbage.
