Ya-ya, the first cookie in The Great Holiday Cookie Swap, actually represents the LAST holiday in the book — Greek Orthodox Christmas. Most Greek Christians celebrate Christmas on December 25th, but many people (including both Greek and Russian Orthodox faiths) celebrate January 7th. It is seen as the day the wise men brought their gifts to the baby Jesus. And by now you may have finished up the other cookies you made during the holidays, so maybe it is time to get baking again! On the other hand, if you are all “cookied out” at this point, you might want to engage in some creativity that does not involve sugar! And I am here for you!
