Christmas is the time of year that we are surrounded by family, friends, and various other loved ones. Being single around the holidays can often be hard, but luckily, our friend and vlogger Akilah has put together a video explaining the intricacies of making Christmas cookies when you're single. 

Not only does she show us some interesting new Christmas cookie shapes in the this informational video, she also gave me my new mantra "calories don't count when you're sad."

Please don't actually use your own tears as an ingredient when making your Christmas cookies, and if you do, please warn me before I eat any of them.
