About Gingerbread House Day
On the second Saturday in December, take time out to participate in this day dedicated to celebrating the family tradition of gingerbread decorating.
Making gingerbread houses is a Christmas tradition in many families. They are typically made before Christmas using pieces of baked gingerbread dough assembled with melted sugar. The roof 'tiles' can consist of frosting or candy. The gingerbread house yard is usually decorated with icing to represent snow.
These days, family members of all ages can have fun building and decorating gingerbread house kits.
