Christmas appetizers are a fun way to start the evening. From healthy to savory, everyone likes a little nibble before the big dinner.

Keep these tips in mind when picking out the perfect Christmas appetizer menu.
- How many guests do you plan of having? Make sure to have at the very least two bite-sized pieces of each appetizer for every guest.
- How much time do you have? Making Christmas appetizers the day before or using crockpot recipes can help save you tons of time on the big dinner day.
- Find balance. Pick one sweet, one salty, and one savory to help blend out flavors and accommodate every type of eater.
