As a child, I was amazed that Baltimore's downtown department stores ripped out their Christmas windows so promptly after Dec. 25. There, on a freezing winter day, would be mannequins dressed in bathing suits. There'd be travel posters and beach umbrellas, too. When I asked my mother why the red-and-green decorations didn't linger longer, she told me the stores had moved on and were now into the cruise season motif. There was no cruise season observance at the old house on Guilford Avenue where I grew up. In fact, these days were some of the best of the year, the time when the holiday cakes and cookies were still in strong supply - and the pre-holiday pressure had evaporated.

It was a much-anticipated ritual: Every year Pamela Guest and her mother, Viola Lewis, would bake Christmas cookies -- lots of Christmas cookies. And every year, friends and family would clamor for some. Last year the pair tried something different: They made enough cookies to sell. The response was so good they decided to turn their sweet pastime into a business. On Nov. 1, they opened Cookie Occasions, a little shop on Liberty Road in Randallstown."We just do cookies," Ms. Guest says. "We pack them in decorative tins or boxes, so that makes them appropriate for every occasion."

Now that we're at the end of the year -- and fed up with articles on how to stay trim and have that box of Christmas cookies -- it's a perfect time for the self-reflective pieces offered in the December issues of Vogue and Esquire. The reflecting is being done by movie stars Winona Ryder and Sylvester Stallone. Both actors talk about seeking liberation from the images that brought them stardom -- Ryder in an OK Vogue article that could have dug deeper, and Stallone in a long, fascinating Q & A with interviewer Susan Faludi, the feminist author of "Backlash."

A child is singing in the next room, calling on the faithful to come and be joyful and triumphant, as she watches a light-up snowman whose hands and feet and eyes turn green and blue and red and purple. A Santa perches on the mantle over the fireplace and two manger scenes cohabit the side table, a standard King James one and an American Indian one in which the Holy Family is gathered in front of a teepee and one of the Magi looks like Sitting Bull. There is talk of a Christmas tree. The mood came on suddenly, and it may have been something we inhaled driving by that house on a side street of St. Paul last night.

As far back as I can remember, baking cookies has been a Christmas ritual in my family. My earliest recollections are of my mother, grandmother and aunt gathering in our farmhouse kitchen and culling prospects from the "Cookies" section of my grandmother's wooden receipt box.Each of the frayed, spattered recipe cards under consideration was removed from the box and discussed at length. Eventually, the three women settled upon an assortment -- it always included sugar cookies, at least one chocolate cookie and often icebox pinwheel slices, meringue kisses and my grandmother's rich-as-sin "rocks" as well.
