For me, nothing beats home made Christmas cookies. My sisters are all awesome bakers - I think I'm just not patient enough to bake more than two different kinds of "Plaetzchen" (that's how we call them in Germany). But they go all in. Huge variety, all neatly decorated, good old recipes and new ones... They just rock. I sure will miss their Plaetzchen this year... but then again my waistline will be happy.

Besides good ole cookies there sure is tons of Christmas candy out there. CandyStore.com already had this awesome interactive map for Halloween (check here), and now they did the research for Christmas and put together another map showing the top 3 favorite Christmas candies by state:
In Arkansas it's Starburst. I don't really understand. That's too fruity! Christmas for me means cookies, chocolate and candy canes. I dig the Californian Top 3 way more!
