Many of us love the gingerbread house. Thanks to the story of “Hansel and Gretel”, it’s become a popular staple of American culture. But, did you know that it has its own day?
Today, Dec. 12, is Gingerbread House Day and the timing is perfect. It is the holiday season and everyone is getting ready to celebrate with several different recipes of all types.
The favorite treat was originally brought to Europe around 992 AD by Gregory of Nicopolis who taught French Christians how to bake it. Since then, there have been so many recipes created around this one favorite treat, and you can decorate it however you want.
For the holidays, you can make it look like Santa’s Workshop or even your own relative’s house. If you want to get fancy, you can pay homage to the gingerbread house’s history with a Victorian castle.
There are so many ways to decorate your own gingerbread house. What’s your favorite?
