To me, the holidays are all about tradition and family. There are certain things I do for the holidays every year, such as going to Hershey to see the lights or baking these double chocolate cookies. These treats are a family recipe that my mom came up with when she was in college. They quickly became a hit, and now we make them each year during the holidays for everyone (and Santa) to enjoy. My whole family helps out when we make them, and that is what makes the cookies so special. They remind me of my childhood, and bring everyone together, which is what the holidays are all about.
