Many people have holiday traditions that include hanging special ornaments on the tree, going to church, singing carols and baking Christmas cookies and treats. I do many of those as well, but no Christmas would be complete without a trip to our favourite little bake shop to pick up our Christmas cookies & squares. I can’t even tell you how many years we have been doing this, but it is one tradition I look forward to each and every year. It is the tiniest little shop run by our local Mennonite community. As soon as you open the door you are hit with the smell of fresh baked bread, homemade pies and baked goods. It’s simply awesome!
