Jon Duncan Hagar, a writer who has authored technical books and a few family stories, has completed his new book “A True Christmas Cookie Story: The Cookies that Made a Family”: a stirring storybook written with great love and inspiration to let the readers feel, know, and realize the real essence of Christmas season.
Jon writes, “‘A True Christmas Cookie Story: The Cookies That Made a Family’ is a true American family Christmas story about love and how a family came to survive and grow and celebrate with many friends around the world. The story spans several generations starting in the New York City area during a time of great hardship, what history has termed the Great Depression. The story begins with Grandmother Susan as a little girl longing for a Christmas tree, who imagines using her mother’s cookies as decorations for a holiday tree, then as gifts to friends, and then to sell to others to make them happy. She grows up to become the Cookie Lady, sharing lovely homemade cookies with her friends to help make their days as special as her mother’s cookies.
“Susan’s story traces how and why her family created the cookies, built the unique cookie cutters, and started sales to enable the whole family to survive the extremely hard times. Susan and her mother, Glennie, shared many cookies and happy memories around the world through this wonderful family Christmas tradition. Pictures of the cookies have appeared in newspapers, famous cookbooks, and television shows. The cookies were sold and shipped around New York City, differing states, and countries for many years. Besides being a Christmas tradition for the Cookie Lady and her family, the cookies supported the family allowing love and future families to bloom. The cookies and cutters in this story continue to be used to this day, keeping Susan’s story and family traditions alive. The book includes the “secret” family recipe for the cookies so everyone can enjoy them and then create their family traditions during the Christmas season.”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Hagar’s new book is a lucid representation of how Yuletide season should be spent by many—to celebrate it with love, compassion, and courage.
With this book, the author wants the readers to feel genuine love and share it with others so no one will spend their Christmas season alone and sad.
