December Holiday Countdown

Merry Christmas Eve! It's time to take stock of where we are in this month of holidays.

December 2007 Holidays Past
4th-12th Hannukah (Festival of Lights, sundown to sundown)
21st Winter Solstice (Are you having a cool Yule?)
23rd Festivus (Did you engage in Feats of Strength and Air Your Grievances?)

December 2007 Holidays Upcoming
25th Christmas
26th Boxing Day
26th & Jan 1st Junkanoo
26th- Jan 1st Kwanzaa
31st New Year's Eve

We are still in full cookie baking swing here since there are, you know, twelve days to Christmas. And you need cookies to make it through all those days. (Do you celebrate Twelfth Night on January 5th? It's a day of feasting, you know.)

Our cookie collection thus far includes:
  • Sugar Cookies
  • Butter Cookies
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Norwegian Lace
  • Black & Whites
  • Snickerdoodles
  • Frosted Cranberry-Orange Cookies
  • Chewy Coconut-Orange Macaroons
  • French Lemon Wafers
Yeah, I bet you wish you were Christmasing at our house. My favorite so far has been the Black & Whites, which are like little brownie bombs covered in powdered sugar. I have to admit that the Cranberry-Orange cookies taste like Christmas all baked up in cookie form.
