In Sweden we have a tradition of baking a Christmas cookie. We call them gingerbread biscuit. We only make them for Christmas, but they are complicated to do. It take a long time to. So I for one always by them, or get them from mum when she have done them. What about you, do you have a special Christmas cookie that you make for Christmas only?

Yes I like to bake Christmas cookies. But it happened few years ago. After I have two little children, three years old and two years old kids, I don't do it anymore. I don't really have time for that. And in the night if they are asleep already, I don't think that I still have energy for that. Maybe if they are older already, I will do it again.

Well I think you should. I think this is a tradition that should go from generation to generation. And start doing it with the kids in a early time is a god start to keep a tradition living. I know that it is not easy with two small kids. But If you organize your time and find it fun to do this with the kids I believe you will get the energy just because of the fun being with the kids and do something they will Love to do. I did, and now my daughter 20 years want the recipe and will do int on her own.

That´s god to keep up a tradition. Tradition to bake just Christmas cookies are a tradition that we should keep on and let the kids learn and when they do grow up and can do them on their own the tradition live´s on. Some things are just for holiday´s and some things are not. Thank you for responding

We used to make cut-out sugar cookies in different Christmas shapes and then decorate them. My mom makes a couple of types of cookies only for the holidays...one of my favorites is her date-filled pinwheels.

Well, I know that this is a tradition, to bake Christmas Cookies. Something that should in Sweden been done by the 13 of December, we are celebrating the lightning LUCIA. Do not know if that is a tradition els where in the world. However, I used to bake those cookies, but since the kids have grown up I do not do them anymore, In fact, it is cheaper to by them finished from the store. God luck with christmas baking Thank´s for responding.
