Default Holiday Dining?

On holidays (such as Easter, Mother's Day, etc.) are you likely to go out?
Would dining out entail a special restaurant offering a prix fixe or buffet
or would a regular menu be more appealing?

For me and mine, we've mixed and matched through the years but have had the
greatest success with the buffet at Fung Lum's in Campbell, CA on those
holidays that fall on Sundays. For special dinners (sans daughter-units), we
don't choose a restaurant based on its menu... But that's because I tend to
steer clear of prix fixe menus because I usually dislike one of the items
being featured. My wife, OTOH, has had exceptional luck with them.

Others?

That depends on the holiday. We almost always go out for dinner in my family
for Mothers and Fathers Days. For some holidays such as Thanksgiving, I
could not imagine eating our family feast in a restaurant.

More appealing than what?

To each his own.
