National Gingerbread House Day

Today is National Gingerbread House Day – that wholesome family traditional of assembling a dwelling made of gingerbread, icing, candies and especially gumdrops as part of the seasonal festivities. Much of the time this is assembled from a kit but it is still a lot of fun and creativity to assemble the structures, especially for small children.

By this I mean you assemble the houses from a kit. One would have to be a bit of a monster to assemble small children from a kit. That is an entirely different story. For this blog I often use professional photos from a service I subscribe to. They have some pretty elaborate and spectacular gingerbread house photos I could have used.

But that just didn’t seem right for a family project like today’s theme. So I borrowed some photos from a friend of Pamela’s who posted these on Facebook (sorry, I don’t do the Facebook).

I’ll not release the names to protect the innocent on the big bad web, but these were artfully assembled by youngsters less than five years old. I think they did a wonderful job, don’t you? Have a very happy holiday season and encourage budding architects!
