I'll admit it, I've never been into Christmas. My dad's family lives in a town called Christmas, where there is a permanent Christmas tree and until recently had a post office that resembled a gingerbread house. My holidays as a child were a rushed and hectic time being juggled between my divorced parents and extended families. When I was in college, I worked in retail, which meant Christmas was a time of cranky customers and screaming children. After college, I worked in the convention services department of a large hotel where Christmas meant working 6-7 days a week at all hours of the day.
All this combines to make me a little Christmas-weary. Not to mention the fact that they start decorating the mall in OCTOBER.
However, the friendly elves at Serenatea have been hard at work for the past few weeks making an entire forest of Christmas cookie trees. I know, you are thinking, what is so special about a tree-shaped cookie? Well, these are three-dimensional trees!
I don't decorate my house for the holidays, but I could definitely get used to having one of these cuties around - at least for an hour until I ate it!
