Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Christmas time is here

Happiness and cheer

Fun for all, that children call

Their favorite time of year


Snowflakes in the air

Carols everywhere

olden times and ancient rhymes

of love and dreams to share

– A Charlie Brown Christmas

Can you feel the magic of the season? I can! I love the holiday season. In Cincinnati, there is so much stuff to do. There is ice skating at Fountain Square, Festival of Lights at the Cincinnati Zoo, and several holiday dinner parties around the city. One thing that my mom use to do for us when we were younger was make holiday candies and sweets for us on Christmas Eve and we would stuff our faces with sugar and hot cocoa and watch the Christmas specials. Now, because we are all grown up, my mom doesn’t love us anymore. So we no longer do those things. But I am trying to talk her into starting up that tradition again this year. If you do anything with your family that is similar, these cookies will be a perfect sweet treat that everyone will enjoy. I think making cookies around the holidays is a defaulted American tradition that Americans have been doing since….whenever. I plan to continue with this tradition my friends and family because it does seem to bring everyone happiness and its just something fun to do. I think these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies are a great start to practice.

From my family, to yours!

Tis the Season
