Every Christmas my mother makes plain cookies for us to decorate. We have been doing this tradition for a while now, I am not exactly sure how long but I know that we have been doing before I was born. My mother started this because it was something fun that the kids could do while she was busy. I really like this tradition, although it does get messy, but we really like to make the cookies as pretty as we can for Santa.
