Looking for something sweet to make your winter season complete? On December 12, bake up some fun on Gingerbread House Day!

Whether it’s home-baked or a purchased kit, designing a tasty cottage can make for a fun and satisfying day.

Want to involve more friends and family? Take part in your local gingerbread house competition, or hold one of your own! Share a picture of your decoration creation with friends so every one can enjoy it!

We owe our thanks to the Brothers Grimm for their tale Hansel and Gretel, which prompted the fun idea of a house made of gingerbread. German gingerbread guilds quickly picked up the idea and refashioned them into the quaint winter cottages we know and love today.
