Would you rather eat only Christmas cookies or only drink hot cocoa?
Oh man….I’ve never thought about this one before. I’ll be honest, I love both Christmas cookies and hot cocoa but neither are my favorite thing in the world. I think if I had to pick one, I would choose to eat only Christmas cookies. I love hot cocoa but I love coffee more and a peppermint mocha is more exciting to me than hot cocoa.
I mentioned in the post 12 Days of Christmas – Day 1 that there is nothing better than one of my grandma’s chocolate crinkle cookies. She only makes them at Christmas time and knows they’re my favorite. She usually makes me my own batch when she is making some for our family Christmas. She now lives only 20 minutes from me but she used to live over 4 hours away, every year she would drive those 4 hours just to give me my tin of chocolate crinkle cookies. Just thinking about them make me think of Christmas.
I think as much as hot cocoa reminds most of Christmas, it really doesn’t do that to me. My mom is not a coffee drinker so growing up she had hot cocoa all the time. She would have a mug every single night whether it was 30 below in February or 100 degrees in July. As kids, she would always make my sister and I some whenever we wanted. We had it so often it never really seemed like a holiday drink to me.
Another reason I would choose Christmas cookies over hot cocoa would be just the tradition of making the cookies. Every single December growing up, Sundays were spent making Christmas cookies with my mom and sister. Those are memories I will never forget and will definitely be doing with my children someday. We all know that besides spending time together, the best part was always eating the first batch right out of the oven. Those Sundays were easily some of my all time favorite days.

Christmas cookies are such a huge part of the holidays in most families. I hope you are feeling better! Did you decide to use these prompts with your students too? I bet they will enjoy sharing their thoughts on these topics, and it is always different to see how children view these types of questions
Baking Christmas cookies is a wonderful memory of mine and so fun to me!!
