Around Christmastime, there's lots of reasons to give. It seems that everyone is in a mood to go the extra mile to show their appreciation and love to friends and family. Yesterday, I sang in a Christmas choir at my church which I helped to organize. As a thank you to all the choir members who sang, I decided to make a selection of my favorite holiday cookies (including these Red Velvet Peppermint Crinkle Cookies) and package them up in Chinese take-out containers, which conveniently already have the words "Thank You" printed on the box. To add a little Christmas flair, I printed green "Merry Christmas" tags and glued them together around the handle of the box.
It was a simple gesture but one that was appreciated by my choir members.
