National Gingerbread House Day

Today is National Gingerbread House Day and fitting for the season.  Making a Gingerbread House most often comes from a kit nowadays and is primarily to keep little hands busy and out of trouble.  Because the Gingerbread walls are made very dry to make them weight supporting and the icing is often dry and brittle to retain shape, Gingerbread Houses are not usually very good eating.  Except for the gumdrops whose chemical make up keeps them soft and delicious for years.  Gumdrops are eternal.  All his the gumdrops.
