“Candy canes, one of the popular sweet treats used for Christmas, originally were straight white sticks of sugar candy. They were used as an embellishment for Christmas trees. The ends of the candy were bent by Cologne Cathedral, to symbolize a shepherd’s crook. The candy canes were given red stripes only in 20th century.” – Christmas Trivia from I love India.com
Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas preparations have begun in earnest. As I look ahead at the normal preparations, parties, and gatherings to come, I am beginning to think I am a little bit nuts to have taken on this big task of 25 cookies in 25 days.
For the average blogger, all the cookies, pictures, and prep work for the next 25 days would be done and ready to post. Unfortunately, I am a bit of a rebel (okay, procrastinator), and the great plans I had to have all my little ducks in a row did not materialize. So now, I get to scramble.
Fortunately, I thrive in scramble mode and flying by the seat of my pants so this should be a piece of cake. Okay, maybe not, but I am up for the challenge. A little encouragement would be greatly appreciated here and I am not above pandering for all that I can get.
Wish me luck.
25 days of Christmas Cookies:
Day 3 – Black and White Peppermint Bars
Day 2 –Iced Ginger Stars
Day 1 –Russian Rocks
