Vegan Christmas Guide: Recipes, Poetry, Parodies & More!

Welcome to the Bite Size guide to Christmas! Get ready for some holiday guidance, poetry, and general awesomeness of the vegan variety. It’s a Christmas miracle. [tweet this] [Okay I wouldn’t actually go that far.]

Hi it’s Emily from Bite Size Vegan and welcome to another vegan nugget! With the holiday season in full gear now, I wanted to remind you of some vegany resources for the season.

If you missed last year’s Bite Size festivities, I have an two multi-channel recipe collaborations for both Thanksgiving and Christmas dishes. Those delicious cruelty-free masterpieces can be found linked below. I even contribute a sad attempt at a recipe in the Christmas edition. [I have no kitchen skillz.]

My more substantial contribution from last year was when I veganized the classic poem ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas, with the ever-tolerant Ooby by my side.


It’s a great light-hearted video to watch in her memory.

I also wanted to share with you two gifts of fantastic videos not made by me.

Yes, such a thing exists.

If you haven’t seen nit already Kerry McCarpet made an astounding Christmas commercial/musical parody that is just expertly executed.



And finally, a hauntingly beautiful and elegantly constructed poem by my dear friend Martin, aka Vegan Geezer, which for the British means “every day kind of guy,” not “decrepit old guy” as it does in the states. Just FYI.

Martin is the father of the adorable JoJo, who is featured in my kids interview series. Martin’s channel is full of great content with his family and he’s currently in the tail end of his “12 Days of Vegan Christmas.” For day one, he shared this incredible poem that turns the whole concept of Christmas cheer on its head and shoes the reality in a very poignant manner. It’s not “graphic in your face,” but it is the hard truth delivered with powerful words.


So check it out and subscribe to that man. And to Kerry. They’re both doing important work!

So that’s the Mini Christmas Guide. Be sure to also check out my last video guide on how to stay vegan during the holidays, particularly around non-vegan friends and family! Everything is linked below as much as I could fit in the sidebar. Always check my descriptions as I link everything you need in there…and sometimes things you don’t most likely. Now go live vegan, have happy holidays, and I’ll see you soon.

    Happy Holidays Emily.

    Many thanks for the tips, Emily!

    I know this first Christmas without Ooby will be hard, so get all the support and Kleenex you need at hand, and remember that she is there in spirit.

    Love and hugs :-)
