National Sugar Cookie Day

Christmas cookie

Today’s FACS Soundtrack selection will seem unseasonal according to the calendar unless you’re aware that today, July 9 is National Sugar Cookie Day.  You have to wonder why a date in the middle of summer was chosen to honor the sugar cookie when I’m sure more of them are baked and eaten in December than at any other time of the year. 

That fact aside, today is the day we celebrate the sugar cookie, so I’ve chosen the song Christmas Cookies by George Strait.  It’s a great song that I think you’ll like.  Enjoy!

 

Now I’m craving a sugar cookie!

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now, Christmas cookies are a special treat
The more she bakes the more I eat
And sometimes I can’t get myself to stop
Sometimes she’ll wait till I’m asleep
She’ll take the ones I didn’t eat
And put those little sprinkly things on top

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now those sprinkly things just makes things worse
‘Cause it makes them taste better than they did at first
And they’re absolutely impossible to resist
Some disappear to who knows where
But I make sure I get my share
And those kids just stand there waiting for the ones I miss

Sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
She gets mad that they’re all gone
Before she gets the icing put on
Sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Now there’s a benefit to all of this
That you might have overlooked or missed
So now let me tell you the best part of it all
Every time she sticks another batch in the oven
There’s 15 minutes for some kissin’ and’a huggin’
That’s why I eat Christmas cookies all year long

I sure do like those Christmas cookies, sugar
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe
The ones that look like Santa Claus
Christmas trees, bells and stars
I sure do like those Christmas cookies, babe

Makes you want to bake a batch, doesn’t it?
