Happy Thanksgiving to everyone who’s celebrating!
For me it’s just a normal Thursday, so I’m already one step ahead and thinking about Christmas. Even though I’m not a fan of cold weather, December seems to be my favorite month of all. Why? Because of all the yummy cookies, lebkuchen, mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, and all the other seasonal delicacies that are only truly fun in winter.
Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved baking Christmas cookies with my mum. In the past few years I’ve scaled down my excessive baking habit a little bit, but I still enjoy producing many different kinds of those delicious sugary goodies. Last year I shared a few of my favorite cookie recipes, but there are many more, mostly in the form of magazine clippings and hand-written notes, all neatly filed away in a folder. (Type A? Me? Psh!)
There’s another seasonal activity that I enjoy very much: visiting Christmas markets! We have lots of them around here, big or small, traditional or trendy. Most local markets start this weekend and I can hardly wait!
What do you love most about Christmas season?
