12 Days of Christmas – Day 12

Would you rather bake or eat Christmas goodies?

Oh my goodness, it’s already day 12!!! This has been such a fun experience this year!!! I’ve LOVED the would you rather theme, it’s added such a fun twist to this year’s Blogmas and it’s all thanks to the amazing Abbey at Three Cats and a Girl!! Thank you Abbey for once again making my December extra exciting!!

All right so this is going to be a short post because I think I’ve already mentioned something like this in an earlier post. I would definitely rather bake Christmas goodies over eat them! I used to be a sweet tooth but as I got older, that went away. I’ve always enjoyed baking when I was younger but I also loved eating as I baked. Now, I just love the baking and I’m 110% okay with giving away everything I make to others.

When I was in high school, I used to spend Sundays in December making batches of different goodies for my friends. I would wrap them up all cute and hand them out at school on Monday. I loved being able to share what I made with people I loved and that has not gone away!

Unfortunately, due to this year being as it is, I didn’t get around to baking anything because I knew it would all go to waste. I haven’t been seeing people because of COVID so I knew if I made anything, they’d only be for me and I know they’d sit in my freezer until next Christmas. (Plus, I HATE cleaning up after I bake or cook ANYTHING so I didn’t want to create multiple messes for no reason.)

Again, I can not believe this year’s 12 days of Christmas is over!! Where did the month go? This is my FAVORITE time of the year but for some reason, I just can’t grasp that Christmas is already tomorrow!? As slow as this year has gone, I think December went by way too fast!

I hope you all have a wonderful and SAFE Christmas! Please, enjoy your family and your break away from the craziness that is 2020. (I also can’t believe this insane year is almost over!) I can’t stress enough how important it is to stay healthy right now! I’m still recovering from COVID that I tested positive for OVER A MONTH AGO! There are days that I feel great and then there are days that I feel awful again. I know that I’m a relatively healthy and fit person so I can’t even fathom how others handle the side effects of post-COVID syndrome. Be smart friends, as much as seeing and being with family right now is great, everyone’s health is much more important!

Have a very merry Christmas! Here’s to Blogmas 2020!!
