Can a "Holiday" cookie really take you out of commission for an entire day?

Yesterday I had what is seemingly becoming a perennial 1-day December flu (as it has been the third time in the last four years I've had it at this exact time). I was able to get one post off, and then spent the rest of the day bed-ridden because any movement whatsoever made things much worse.

I don't know why this happened. I did have a Christmas Holiday (Marxmas?) cookie the night before (below), but that couldn't be the problem. I mean a cookie can't make you violently ill...

Right?

Well, I'm feeling almost 100% today, so back to work I go!
