The Christmas holiday season has many traditions that people follow like hanging stockings on the mantle, decorating a Christmas tree, leaving cookies out for Santa Claus, singing carols, etc. One of the best traditions is the Holiday Party.

For most people, these are fun occasions to eat and drink to excess. However, for allergy sufferers and the parents of children with food allergies, the Holiday party scene can be a scary proposition. You must keep a careful eye for foods prepared with milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish , and shellfish.
