Is it lasanga, prime rib or turkey? We at Action News Now set out to learn what the Christmas dinner tradition is here in the North State and it looks like there is no one size fits all approach.

However, the butcher shop at S&S Produce has selling out of crab like crazy, but butchers there say they still have plenty of prime rib.

The store actually had to order more crab, which will arrive on Christmas Eve.

We asked shoppers what their Christmas dinner tradition is and the dishes seemed to vary quite a bit.

"So Christmas eve we always do lasanga and Christmas day mostly prime rib," said Ian Byrd.

"Traditionally is turkey, turkey potatoes, cranberries and corn that would be what I had as a kid," said Louis Wilson.

"Making poor man tacos and it has oregeno, hash browns, ham burger and peas and we stuff it in tacos and have it for our family tradition," Mellissa Wright. 

We posted on our Facebook page asking what people eat on Christmas here are some of the comments:
