This year, some of our holiday traditions will have to be rainchecked (or should we say snowchecked). The big family dinners, the parties, the last minute trips to the mall— all tucked away until 2021. But there are lots of ways we can still celebrate this snowy time of year, like getting to bake and eat some delicious treats. Not sure what to munch on first? The stars have all the answers. Sleigh!
ARIES: March 21 - April 19
Aries, you’re competitive all year round… the holidays included! Sure, it’s about joy and celebration, but you’ll be itching to find something to win at. And what better way to show-off than with a gingerbread house decorating contest. Start building those walls, frosting the roofs and polishing your trophy.
TAURUS: April 20 - May 20
You fancy Taurus. You’re probably going to skip over a regular shmegular sugar cookie during the holiday season. You want something LUXE. You’re a croquembouche through and through! A croquem-what?? It’s basically a fancy French tower of pastries drizzled in caramel. It’s beautiful to look at and it’s perfect for an aesthetic babe like U!
GEMINI: May 21 - June 20
Dear Gemini, you’re ruled by Mercury which is the planet of communication. And how do we communicate with Santa? Letters and MILK AND COOKIES. We couldn’t reach Santa for comment, but word on the street is he likes red and green M&M’s in his cookies. Take a few for yourself before leaving them out Xmas Eve. They’ll get you on the “Nice List” for sure.
CANCER: June 21 - July 22
The holidays are probably your fav time of the year. It’s a season that revolves around the things you love the most: comfort and family. So it makes sense that your holiday treat has to be deliciously traditional. This year, cozy up around the fireplace with some rugelach. You can fill these old school pastries with basically anything you want but cinnamon, walnuts and chocolate will defs get you into the spirit.
LEO: July 23 - August 22
Sure, there may already be one topping the tree, but we know you’re the real star of Christmas. And what burns brighter than the Yule Log Cake itself (If you wanna be fancy, they’re also called bûche de Noël). There is nothing more Leo than regular ol’ cake disguised as something else, just to get attention. It’s the centrepiece of the table, just like you!
VIRGO: August 23 - September 22
You like order. You like instruction. You like rules. You like a calendar. You are a Chocolate Advent Calendar kind of person through and THROUGH. There is no holiday treat that will give a Virgo more Joy (ie. stability, organization) than an advent calendar. Why have one snack when you can have 24??
LIBRA: September 23 - October 22
Hm...with so many holiday desserts on the table, how does a Libra choose? I’ll make it easy for you: hot chocolate with marshmallows. This way you can have your dessert (marshmallows) and drink it too. It’s also easily customizable (water? Milk? Crushed peppermint? A dash of salt? Extra hot? Dark chocolate? Chocolate powder?) so you can have your way every time— a Libra’s dream!
SCORPIO: October 23 - November 21
Scorpios, you are not afraid to blaze your own trail. Which means that you need a holiday treat that’s just as fiery. You’re a water sign, so we’re going with a beverage on this one. Your go-to festivus drink is hot apple cider. A lil’ bit sweet, a lil bit’ spicy, it’s the perfect drank to be sippin’ on for the month of December.
SAGITTARIUS: November 22 - December 21
You are the world travellers of the zodiac! You love adventuring to new places and trying new things. This December, you get to metaphorically fly to Italy and try panettone. It’s a traditional Italian Christmas cake that can be filled with just about anything. If you’re not into dried fruit (and who is really), there are a ton of chocolate options to explore. Mamma Mia!
CAPRICORN: December 22 - January 19
Never one to shy away from a challenge, you’re up for a little work this snowy season. Smash into the holidays by whacking one of those chocolate oranges on a table. It’ll take some muscle, but you’ll really get to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Get it? He he he ho ho ho.
AQUARIUS: January 20 - February 18
Always ahead of the curve, you love a candy cane! kind of But not a typical ol’ peppermint one. I’m talking about those candy canes whose flavors are a little out of the box. Some of the craziest candy canes out there? Pickle, bacon and wasabi. But you’ve probably tried them already.
PISCES: February 19 - March 20
One of the artsiest signs in the universe, you’re looking to flex your Picasso this winter season. The best way to do that? DECORATE SOMETHING! You’re about to take a classic sugar cookie and pipe a work of art into it. Whether that’s Santa or the Grinch, we wanna see! DM us a pic on Instagram @ktbyknix
