What should we make for Christmas Dinner and possibly establish as a new family tradition?

I'm not big into roast beef and traditional turkey and stuffing doesn't appeal. I like cooking and I like tradition though I also like establishing my own tradition. Last year we made the mufti-day, many-ingredient Chicken Mole recipe from a Rick Bayless cookbook for Christmas dinner. It was good but perhaps a little too involved. I have time but maybe not that much time this year. Ideally it would be something we could make every year though that's not a requirement. Previous years we've also made pizza from scratch and made lasagna.
This year there's probably just three of us (me, my husband, and our 4-year old) but leftovers are welcome. I can source just about any ingredient in North America. No allergies though we don't eat red meat (except bison occasionally). Something that feels like an accomplishment at the end and is super delicious are the goals.
