The winter holidays are a time for celebration and spending time with our loved ones. Yes, this means spreading glad tidings of joy at family gatherings, but it also means taking solace in more than a few food-time guilty pleasures.

Sadly, heaping seconds and thirds of overly-greased meats and oh-so-sweet desserts onto our plates can often lead to a mean case of heartburn, but that's no reason to skip out on some of the season's weirdest, most intense creations.

Check out just a few of these mouth-watering oddities families have been bringing to their Christmas spreads over the years. If you're feeling adventurous enough to slam down anything from a triple-meat throwdown to sweet-tooth satisfying sugar overloads, just make sure you have a pack of ZANTAC® heartburn relief handy. Heck, maybe even ask Santa to slide a few packs in your stocking.
