Christmas season comes with a lot of familiar things: parties, gifts, travel, holiday movies and music…and cookies…LOTS AND LOTS OF COOKIES.
I think we’re all going to be dreaming of sprinkles for the next three months because we’re cramming so many of these babies in our mouths right now…
Let’s take a look at the tweets.
1. That’s why.
5-year-old: We have to eat all the Christmas cookies.
5: So Mom makes more Christmas cookies.
Me: *starts eating all the cookies*

2. A perfect plan.
A Single Jewish Girl's Guide to Christmas Eve: "Well SOMEbody in this house has to eat all of these cookies tonight if Santa isn't coming."

3. A precarious game.
My mouth is playing a losing game of Just The Tip with this Christmas tree cookie.

4. It’s gonna get ugly.
You think you cringed watching your kids decorate the Christmas tree? Wait until they help bake cookies. ???

5. You do you.
"O, night. O night divine," I sing softly as I prepare to eat an entire batch of Christmas cookies all by myself.

6. Good job!
Me: what was your favorite part of our Christmas party? Friends? Staying up late? Knowing Christmas is soon?
5: nobody knew how many cookies I took from the table. I must have had 20.

7. No self-control.
Me: I always get sick just before Christmas.
Him: Do you get flu shots?
Me: Why? Would they stop me from over-eating Christmas cookies?

8. Why am I doing this?
Baking Christmas cookies with your kids is a great way to question all of your life choices.

9. Santa’s in for a surprise.
If all the Christmas cookies turn out like the ones my kids just made we may have to leave Santa fortune cookies.

10. Explain that one.

That moment when you finally finish the last batch of rolled Christmas cookies and your kids lost interest 40 mins ago.

13. A long process.
"Ugh! Why do Christmas cookies take so long to make?"

14. You must finish the job.
I was supposed to go to bed an hour ago, but these Christmas cookies aren't going to eat themselves.

15. Tips from Mom.
"I want you to make a Christmas cookie where people look at it and say, 'wow, that looks like a Christmas cookie.'"
– my mother

Do you tend to go overboard on the cookies around this time of year?
Don’t feel bad about it! We do it, too!
