Cookies in the Cookie Box

Why are these called Christmas Crunchies?  I think they are an excellent cookie to be eaten at all times! 
Here's the recipe
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 c. flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c. regular oats, uncooked, 1 c. corn flakes (I use 7 grain Organic Honey flakes), 1/2 c.shredded coconut, 1/2 c chopped pecans.  I use my kitchenaid for this and it goes together really quickly.  Cream butter adding sugars.  Add egg and beat well.  Stir in vanilla.  With flour, baking powder, soda, salt mixed together add it to the creamed mix beating well.  Then mix in the oats, cornflakes, coconut and pecans.  Shape into 1 inch balls, 2" apart on baking sheet.  Bake 350 for 10-12 minutes.  Remove to cool.
