  77. Silly Mummy says:

    These look lovely! I lived in the States for a year when I was 17, and the fact that the turkey was for Thanksgiving and not Christmas dinner upset me a bit, as didn’t quite feel like traditional Christmas for me. BUT the fact that it was cookies and not Christmas cake that we had at Christmas I thought was awesome! We should do that here, as I love cookies and hate Christmas cake (& mince pies)! #sharethejoy
