Imagine the excitement of a child’s face shortly before Christmas when Mom pulls out an assortment of colourful and delicious candies in preparation for making together the holiday favorite that is the gingerbread house. Other than opening presents of course, for many children building a gingerbread house or making dozens of delicious gingerbread cookies is the most memorable part of the holidays.
The same appeal holds for adults. To warm up the whole house and fill the air with delicious yuletide scents, there’s nothing better than spending an afternoon making gingerbread. In a season of traditions, there are few more timeless and cherished.
