COOKIES, A SEASONAL TRADITION
Holidays brings many wonderful things; a family favorite is cookies! Making cookies as a family is a great way for everyone to come together over a fun activity during the cold months at Lake of the Ozarks. It is also a tradition for many families or a fantastic tradition to start. Many people even do cookie exchanges to get a variety but only having to bake one type. Whoever came up with that idea must have had a serious sweet tooth. Gingerbread, sugar cookies and recipes handed down for generations, lets be honest, all cookies are good cookies!
COOKIES FOR SANTA
“Leaving cookies and milk for Santa—and perhaps a few carrots for his reindeer—took off as an American holiday tradition in the 1930s, during the Great Depression. In that time of great economic hardship, many parents tried to teach their children that it was important to give to others and to show gratitude for the gifts they were lucky enough to receive on Christmas. Some 80 years later, many children still set out cookies and milk for Santa, whether out of the goodness of their hearts or (in less wholesome cases) as a bribe to receive more gifts from the jolly bearded man in the red suit.”
