Hey Gang! Gin­ger­bread House Day is Decem­ber 12! Did you know there was an offi­cial Gin­ger­bread House Day? I didn’t, but now that I do,I think it feels total­ly right to have a day to cel­e­brate gin­ger­bread hous­es, because they are the BEST!  So Christ­masy and the per­fect way to flex your cre­ative mus­cles and sat­is­fy your sweet tooth AT THE SAME TIME!!!!

Gin­ger­bread hous­es were pop­u­lar­ized by the Broth­ers Grimm’s fairy tale Hansel and Gretel , becom­ing a pop­u­lar Christ­mas dec­o­ra­tion in Ger­many in the ear­ly 1800’s. The world’s largest gin­ger­bread house was made in Tex­as (of course it was) in 2013 and looks deli­cious!

Even if your gin­ger­bread hous­es turn out more like this

than this

you can still have a great time mak­ing a beau­ti­ful (hey, beau­ty is in the eye of the behold­er, and so on…) mas­ter­piece and many won­der­ful mem­o­ries!

Here are some more fan­tas­tic gin­ger­bread hous­es for inspi­ra­tion! Hmmmm…maybe a Nec­co Wafer roof this year, or marsh­mal­low snow­men, or a sour patch Hansel and Gretel as a shout out to the gin­ger­bread house’s spooky begin­nings… So many choic­es!

Have a hap­py and Fun Gin­ger­bread House Day, y’all!!!
