    What day of the year is cookie day celebrated on?  I'm not much in to Christmas but I could get behind celebrating cookies.

      It's kind of a long story about why we chose that date, but why we celebrate it is brief enough.

      Cookie Day is the day we celebrate bounty through the tasty symbol of cookies, the day we bake (or buy) cookies to share with one another.  The cookie is the symbol of all our personal wealth - creativity, inspiration, worldly goods, finances.  We keep all the cookies we want that we made or bought for ourselves, but we share the excess around, and at the end of Cookie Day, we not only have the comfort and joy of our own cookies, we have the shared cookies of others - and those who didn't have many cookies (or whose batches of cookies failed, or were too sick to bake or buy cookies...) got enough cookies, because those who made or bought lots of cookies had extras to share.

      At the end of Cookie Day, everyone has a large variety of cookies. Everyone has cookies they didn't make or buy that they can eat or share. And everyone has their favorite cookies, too.

      It's our most important holiday.
