It happens pretty much the same every year. On Christmas Day I'll carry presents into my dad's house, drop them by the tree, give quick hugs and make a beeline for the cookie tray. It doesn't matter what time it is or if I've already eaten. Christmas cookies are tradition and I simply can't resist them. Chocolate crinkles, coconut butterballs, holly wreaths, cutouts, almond trees, peanut kisses - the list goes on. I'm not just talking a few cookies on a plate - I'm talking a ridiculous amount of cookies.
My incredible dad, who is in his 80s, makes about 20 different kinds of cookies every year. He makes up beautiful boxes and gives them out to all sorts of people in his neighborhood and at his church. Luckily, he saves plenty for me. (Well, not just for me, but I will push my sisters out of the way to get to them.) Sure, they taste delicious, but it's more than that. It's the pure love and sentimental tradition that is baked in each one that really makes them special.
