The all-you-care-to-enjoy Southern breakfast buffet will offer the traditional fare: sausage links, fried bologna, country ham, eggs, and fruit. In previous years, the buffet served 840 pounds of eggs, 2,432 sausage patties, 700 pounds of country ham, and 2,880 biscuits. In 2012, the Christmas Eve buffet was named the Special Event of the Year by the Tennessee Hospitality and Tourism Association (now called Hospitality Tennessee).

The annual Christmas Eve Breakfast was started as a gift to the community in the 1980s by the late T. Clark Shaw, who was a second-generation owner of The Old Country Store. Through the years, the entire Shaw family and Old Country Store team have played a role in making the event a success. Third-generation owner Brooks Shaw said it is an honor to host the annual event.

“I’m proud to continue the tradition of our annual Christmas Eve Breakfast,” Shaw said. “It has become a cherished tradition for local families and guests alike. The day brings everyone together for fellowship and holiday fun. It’s our way of spreading joy and warmth during this special season.”
