There was a time when all of my aunts (and my mom) on my dad’s side of the family collected cookie jars. I don’t know how many my aunts still have, but my mom has not yet parted with any of her collection. At Christmas, the buffet in the kitchen gets covered with Christmas-themed cookie jars. Even though my mom bakes all the time, none of them are filled with cookies.
My favorite is the Christmas tree with the ladder. But this is one collection I’m hoping not to inherit (don’t worry–my mom already knows this). 🙂
