Twelve days of Small-batch Christmas cookies and Christmas movie recommendations.
Hey, did you know that as of today, Wednesday the 13th of December, there are only 12 days until Christmas? One, where did the first half of December go, wasn’t it Thanksgiving like yesterday? And Two, that means you have just 12 days left to savor all the Christmas joy you can wring out of this cold dark world before you have to pack it away for another year. Time to double your effort.
Aside from the obvious things, friends, family, sharing, caring, PRESENTS, etc., my favorite things this time of year are Christmas cookies and Christmas movies, so today I’m sharing a round-up of both. Small-batch Christmas Cookies, so you can bake to your heart’s content this month without sweet-ing yourself out ahead of all the holiday parties and the very best Christmas movies to fill these long December evenings. If you make one recipe and watch one movie a day starting today, this list will take you all the way up through Christmas Eve, and it will be a delicious, delightful ride.
Special thanks to my newsletter subscribers who sent in their Christmas movie recommendations! You guys are, as always, the best.
