Just hear those sleigh bells ringing with turkey, stuffing and brie.

Or something to that effect.

If your absolute favourite part of Christmas dinner is the sambos afterwards, why wait til Stephen's Day? We might still be in November but as most of us have come to accept at this stage, Christmas is starting early this year. And I for one am fully on board, mostly because it means there are already turkey and stuffing sambos on offer all over Dublin. The perfect snack to stop off and enjoy during a stressful Christmas shopping trip, or for a comforting lunch to get you through the work day. Honestly, do I need to convince you why Christmas sandwiches are good? We're surely all on the same page here. Here's a list of spots in Dublin that already have seasonal sambos on offer, which I'm sure will grow and grow between now and the main event.
