Christmas Cookies

Christmas cookies  should be in Christmas colors.  True or False?

For decades I have believed True. Christmas cookies should be white (ish) with red, green, silver, or gold decorations. Blue Christmas decorations are a novelty to which I’ve adjusted. Mauve and black are horrors.
