Often, if it works out for me timewise, I will begin my Christmas cookie baking on the day of our first significant snowfall, which is often before Thanksgiving. Astute New Englanders will quickly grasp the problem with this otherwise charming idea: There are times -- not often, it's true -- but there are those occasional years when we don't get snow until very close to Christmas indeed. So if I held to my "first snowfall" tradition, we might not have any Christmas cookies baked and stored away for gifting! So I usually start sometime in November, definitely before Thanksgiving.
Mr. T is retiring from his logging job mid-December, so he will get to help me this year. He loves baking Christmas cookies!
