DUDE-you totally forgot Super Bowl Sunday, which varies from late Jan to early Feb., but it is totally an eating occasion!

I was (and am) somewhat torn on the whole Super Bowl thing as regards inclusion in the Eating Season, mostly because eating is somewhat peripheral to the day itself, and partially because my teams almost invariably lose, except for last year when the loathsome Patriots were spanked like a toddler at Wal-Mart.
But, I hereby take your suggestion under advisement.

As we don't "do" Halloween or have a Thanksgiving here in Oz, or Aoteoroa, we have something called Grand Finals parties.
Depending on your choice of sport, or indeed, your sporting inclinations, the overindulgence may only be liquid, but there is usually a token of sausages, kebabs, 'steaks' or chops,burnt offerings, in the guise of A Barbeque, in preparation for the watching of the Grand Final. Or hideous dips, into which small (unwashed) fingers may be poked, at peril, in a series of lightning fast raids, to test 'Dad's reflexes',by the assembled kinder.
There may also be crisps or potato chips as we call them, plus small horrible tasting cracker biscuits poked, gouged, or dipped & forgotten & abandoned in a moment of frenzy when Gazza just missed kicking that goal or downing that try.
Come to think of it I am seriously glad I dont follow any sport. I would much prefer a hearty Thanksgiving of some sort!!
Sorry for hijacking your post comment box.

We do the porcine thing at Christmas, and add latkes to balance it all out.

You're making my stomach hurt.
Oh wait - that's the Halloween candy I stole from the kids.
