For a lot of my growing up years, oyster soup was very much associated with Christmas time. I wrote about this in CityBeat way back in 2001.
I wondered if they still had it in their archives. I did a Google search and sure enough. Here it is.
After my little essay ran, I saw some old friends and they had a Christmas gift for me: A can of oyster soup!
That was very thoughtful of them. Having said that, the can is still in my cupboard somewhere.
(No, that’s not really oyster soup in the photo. It’s Oyster stew—close enough. It’s from giovannisfishmarket.com)
