Name one kind of traditional food you eat in your country. When, why do you eat this food?
For example, in the US, we eat turkey to celebrate Thanksgiving/Autumn Harvest. Everyone from around the country, drive or fly back to celebrate this tradition/holiday with their family.

In Christmas we in Norway usually eats a dish made of sheep meat called "Pinnekjøtt". Some Norwegian do also eat Christmas rib or cod in Christmas too. We do also have Christmas cakes. We have the traditional brown gingerbread which Americans also have. But we do have a white version as well where the ginger bread is softer and whiter. That's called "Kakemann".
Other Norwegian dishes: Raspeball (Potato dumplings), Brun ost (Brown cheese), Rømmegrøt (Porridge), Lapskaus (Stew), Lefse (Flat bread/dessert).3

YES! I love these kinds of topics relating to food :D
I was born and raised in Jamaica before I moved. So my family is Jamaican. Here are some things we eat on special occasions.
For Independence Day, Heritage Day, National Heroes Day, Jamaica Day etc. (we are VERY patriotic people) we always enjoy our National Dish: Ackee and Saltfish. We don't usually enjoy that mixture alone so we usually put fried dumplings, fried or roasted breadfruit, callaloo or fried plantains along with it.
For Christmas, we enjoy fruit cake (with extra rum ;) well, that's how my family makes it), banana bread or pudding and the usual ham or jerk pork. For drinks we serve Sorrel Juice.
Last but not least, you cannot forget the Sunday Dinner. Yes, every Sunday is a feast. This is how much we love our food. We need a GOOD meal before we go back to work/school the next day. We enjoy brown rice and peas, with oxtail and many vegetables with homemade juice. For dessert, we eat ice-cream :) (that's how it went in my family).4
