Eat festive cupcakes
As if the holidays weren’t enough of an excuse to indulge in your sweet tooth, here is another reason: Use the date as a reason to buy a dozen cupcakes, and as an added bonus, pick flavors that are of the season. Georgetown Cupcakes, which opened earlier this year on Newbury Street, has many festive choices available, including chocolate egg nog, holiday lava fudge, and Rudolph red velvet.
