Many people look forward to sweet treats during the Christmas holidays. Fruitcake is part of the Christmas celebration in many countries. This rich cake is made with spices, dried fruit and nuts. The best fruitcakes are 50 percent fruit and nuts. To come in America, however, fruitcake is not appealing. They don’t think it tastes good, and it’s usually stale. People who receive one often regift it rather than eat it.
Christmas cookies, on the other hand, are warmly welcomed. People usually bake these fancy cookies at home. Sugar cookies are the most popular. They are cut out on Christmas-themed shapes and decorated with frosting and colored sugar. People often make plates of these special cookies to give away as gifts.
Sweet and spicy gingerbread is another traditional favorite. Some people make gingerbread cookies. Others make elegant houses from gingerbread and decorate them with frosting and candy. Some towns even have contests for gingerbread house builders.
Everyone enjoys the Christmas season – especially the treats that come with the season!
