For most holidays, I go pretty standard with deserts. On Thanksgiving, we have pies. On Fourth of July, American flag cake. On Easter, sorbet shaped like a giant egg.

Or maybe it's because the few months leading up to Christmas are already saturated with pies and cakes, so I immediately nix those ideas out of sheer boredom. Whenever I host Christmas day at my home, I like to come up with a new dessert "genre", if you will.
