I get a little tired of the traditional red and green all over everything this time of year. This is so much more pleasing to the eye. Plus, who wants to eat a blood red cookie?
Now that Santa's work is done, he's heading back to the North Pole to sip some peppermint schnapps and take his boots off by the fire. Maybe the reindeer will get some extra carrots and the elves will get a week at a spa. But before you know it, work starts up again. Gotta get that naughty and nice list going.
Red and white do make a fantastic combo, don't they? And snowflakes are so satisfying in their symmetry and fragility. Basically, winter is magic, and the buttery, spicy delicious treats we get to indulge in without any guilt make the holidays rich. Bring on the cookies, I'm ready!
