Once again, we've hopped-skipped-and-jumped straight from Halloween and onto Christmas! (Aside: I've never understood why Thanksgiving gets the short end of the cookie-stick each year, but I've got some new Thanksgiving - and other - cookie stencils coming out in two weeks that will hopefully reverse this trend once and for all!)

Shameless self-promotion aside, let's get to this week's hot list*, shall we?!
While a couple of popular Halloween and autumn cookies continue to top our charts with tens of thousands of views (way to go, @Dhsprad and @Evelindecora), it's snowflakes, reindeer, and snow globes that are catching the greatest interest right now. Special congrats to the always prolific @Teri Pringle Wood who has five (yes, five!) cookies in this Spotlight. It just goes to show that there's nothing but upside to posting lots of cookies here! Teri's work happens to be fabulous as well, but she is also extremely generous in posting her work to this site. Thank you, Teri!

So that no one has an unfair advantage in making it onto a hot list, the algorithm is secret even to site administrators. Only our platform developers know the code, which has been exhaustively tested by those developers and Cookie Connection staff.
