Christmas treats are so special because we only get to have them once a year, and getting to bake them only adds to the fun!

Cookies for Santa, holiday pies, Christmas-themed cupcakes and more. You really can't go wrong with Christmas sweets. But why is baking them so much fun?

Baking any time of the year is enjoyable, but when it's Christmastime it just takes on a whole new level of happiness. Maybe it's the time you get to spend with friends and family while you're baking. Or maybe it's the joy you get from seeing your loved ones enjoy the treats you've baked. Or maybe it's just the Christmas spirit that makes the baking more fun!
