Christmas Cookie Party- Holiday Cookies for Everyone

us-cookie-gift-tower-X675.jpgThe joys of the Christmas Season and the delight of munching on sweet tasting Christmas cookies are two of the best things about the approaching winter season. One of the best ways to ensure that you have a wide variety of cookies to enjoy is to host a Christmas Cookie Party at your home. Plus, you can acquire a number of new recipes to try out on your own.

At a Christmas Cookie Party, everyone who is invited prepares a batch or two of their favorite type of Christmas cookies. Once all of the baking is finished, everyone exchanges a dozen cookies with everyone else in the group. If there are six guests plus the hostess, then each participant receives seven dozen cookies for each round of cookie batches.

Plan your event well in advance so that you secure the presence of as many guests as possible for cookie making. The party invitations can be as simple or as elegant as you like. Try to keep in tone with the theme of the event as a visual reminder for those who place their invitation on the kitchen refrigerator or bulletin board. Cards shaped as gingerbread men or candy canes are great themes to use that easily remind your friends and coworkers about the purpose of the gathering.

Only invite as many guests as you think that your kitchen can accommodate during a massive baking session. If you have a separate dining area with a table in it, this provides additional space, which means additional guests can be included. Plus, if the first Christmas Cookie Party goes well, you can always host another one.

Alternatively, you can invite guests in shifts and plan your party for an entire day and evening. In this scenario, your guests will only be able to take home some of the different varieties of Christmas cookies, whereas you will have the opportunity to exchange yours for some of each type.

Be very specific with the instructions that you include in each invitation. If you want each guest to bring all of her ingredients, baking paraphernalia, and packaging items, state that clearly. If you prefer to provide everything by yourself, you can state that as well. In most cases, it is best to have everyone bring their own ingredients since a wide variety might be used.

Additionally, it is a good idea to inform your guests that people might wish to share the recipes along with the cookies. This allows your guests the opportunity to avoid divulging family trade secrets for cookies by binging a different recipe.

Be careful to include a statement that indicates any allergies to food items that other guests might have such as peanut allergies. Also, provide a time frame for your ChristmasCookie Party so that everyone knows when the fun is going to end.

Planning a Christmas Cookie Party is a terrific idea during the holiday season. It can be a great way to prepare cookies for the office party, the neighborhood gathering, or for the local food pantry. Whatever your motivation for planning a Christmas Cookie Party, the end result is going to be the same- lots of fun and lots of delicious cookies!

The Selfish Act Of Giving, by Laura Tucker

Traditional knowledge tells us the business of gift giving and receiving is built around the old adage, "It's better to give than to receive." As a society of giving people we want to make an acknowledgment to the people in our life of what the relationship means to us, but the act isn't nearly as selfless as it seems. 

At first, thought giving a gift seems like a selfless act, but once you follow all the thoughts involved, it isn't really selfless after all. There is something you are hoping to gain from it, so it can't be completely selfless. You're doing it so that you will feel good about yourself. Seeing that look on the recipient's face, the immediate knowledge that they've been waiting for this gift or are genuinely surprised by it is what we're waiting for. This becomes a gift to ourselves. 

When I shop for a gift for someone, I try to find something that lets them know how I connect to them, a symbol of our relationship. This is someth…
