by xoxkar


It's that time of year again. You can just feel that Christmas is right around the corner! The month of Celebrating is a wonderful time of year, where we all enjoy the holiday decorating, shopping, and baking. A favorite of most is to enjoy some delicious baked goods, and a warm holiday drink with our friends. The Christmas trees have been put up and decorated beautifully with festive holiday ornaments, tinsel, lights, and a sparkling gold star. Stockings have been hung above the crackling fireplace waiting to be filled with goodies! Delightful aromas of fresh baked sugar cookies, gingerbread, and other holiday treats fill the air with a mouthwatering aroma, bringing a smile to everyone's face. The wreaths have been placed on the door, spreading holiday cheer to all who walk by. The nights are cold and dark, but the bright shining Christmas lights will light up those dark nights! The town of Neopia is full of shoppers looking to find some great holiday gifts to send to all their friends!

The month of Celebrating is a time of year when many like to plan a special celebration for all their friends, so here I have created a list of the most mouthwatering and delicious baked goods, and holiday drinks you can serve at your holiday celebrating!
