The End of an Era

I can't believe it. A piece of my childhood has been ripped away from me. The economy has claimed more than jobs, it has claimed a beloved Christmas tradition.

Archway Cookies is going out of business.

Every year I look forward to several things...egg nog (and all things egg-nog related), Christmas cards, hearing O Holy Night, and Archway Frosted Fingers.

I have eaten these cookies since I was a little girl. I have stolen them out of the bottom drawer in the kitchen and hid them in my room (sorry Mom). Mom has bought them for me year after year, even though I've been out of the house for over ten years. They are always waiting for me at Mom and Dad's house like a trusted friend. The sight of them makes my heart leap. There is nothing that even comes close.

What do I do now? Life will never be the same.

O Christmas Fairy, Hanukkah Armadillo, Festivus King...can you please make a little girl's dream come true this Christmas? PLEASE BRING BACK THE FROSTED FINGERS.
