There wasn’t much knitting done in this house lately. Around Christmas I usually get busy with cleaning the house and baking cookies. There’s one type of cookies that my husband’s mother traditionally makes and they are a tradition in our house too. We always make them and than we also try some other recipes.
But what I really wanted to share with you was a photo of our cookie box which, I am sure some of my readers will recoginize. I am also sure we all share the same feelings about these particular boxes, or at least, about this kind of relics of our common past. I don’t know how old this box really is, it must be at least 20 years of age, it was made and bought in Yugoslavia, a country that does not exist any more.
What I feel is so special about it is that it was filled with sweets back than and that’s what we use it for nowdays as well, fullfilling it’s main purpose. Even though we live in a totally different world with many different values, the sweet message of the “Yu cookies” is still here, filling our new years expectations with new wishes and desires. And, you know, some of us still share those old ‘Yu values’ or maybe it was ‘Yu dreams’?
