Christmas traditions are a special part of everyone’s holiday season. Here is one of our favorites! Sarah Johnson shares with us her love of one Christmas tradition, “Cookies Galore!” We would love to hear about some of YOUR favorite Christmas traditions so we can share them with the members, readers, and followers of RUBY magazine.
“I love those extravagant double-page magazine layouts with so many cookies that the dishes bump together, all jostling and glistening with excess. When chilly weather rolls around, it is to that ideal I aspire, filling as many plates and bowls as can be managed, non-stop, until by the light of my Christmas tree, every corner spills with abundance. The coldness of lack melts away, replaced by the warmth of plenty. The feast. The banquet. The joy of having more than enough to share.”
Sarah Johnson writes, photographs and gardens from her home near the tidal marshes of the Delaware Bay. Her work is inspired by the glory of God’s creation and the nuances of light in life, from that of literal sunshine to the shadow-dispelling joy of serving her Creator. Herding three cats, two children and a husband, keeps her busy between editing flowerbeds and weeding paragraphs. She is the editor of ‘Garden Cumberland’, a gardener’s resource that encourages others to find their hearts in the sunshine and soil of South Jersey. https://www.facebook.com/GardenCumberland
