Smile Christmas party food ideas?

Hi chicks! I'm planning a Christmas party for this coming Sunday and want to serve seasonal, semi-healthy but still yummy hors d'eourves. Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Here are 2 of my favorites, see if they strike your fancy!

skewered greek salad

12 (6" wooden skewers)
24 grape or cherry tomatoes
3 oz feta cheese, cut into 12 (1/2" cubes)
12 pitted kalamata olives
1/2 small red onion, cut into 12 (1/2" pieces)

Vinaigrette
2 tsp each fresh lemon juice and red wine vinegar
4 tsp chopped fresh oregano
2 Tbls extra virgin olive oil
salt & pepper to taste

1. Skewers: Thread skewers starting with a tomatoe, then a piece of feta cheese, an olive, and a piece of onion, and finish with another tomato.
2. Vinaigrette: In a small bowl, mix together the lemon juice, red wine vinegar, and 2 tsp of oregano. Whisk in olive oil until mixture thickens. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
3. Arrange skewers on a serving platter. Spoon vinaigrette over skewers and sprinkle with remaining oregano.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

I love to skewer pineapple chunks from the can in 100 % juice, red grapes and green melon or strawberries alternately up the skewer for easy healthy fruit kabobs
