I have been invited to my friend's for Easter dinner this weekend. Now, I don't know, but I assume that they will be serving ham. I used to keep kosher and once turned down a pork chop at this very house, which lead to my friend's mother seeming to get a bit offended or something. Either way, it was awkward.

I no longer eat kosher. But I do just generally dislike the taste of ham. Should I eat it to be polite and skip the weird vibes (something I would do with any other gross food a host gave me) or safely avoid it based on my pork-shunning history?

Also, if you don't eat something for whatever reason, has it ever caused awkwardness when you were a dinner guest?
