Celebrate Gingerbread House Day-December 12


As the holiday season approaches, many families are looking for activities that are fun for the whole family.  Why not try a gingerbread house?  December 12th is recognized as National Gingerbread House Day so gather your family together, bake up some gingerbread and start building and decorating a gingerbread house or two.  There are many ways to get started on this fun project.   If you don't want to bake gingerbread, you can use graham crackers to make a house. If you want to have some family fun, remember to celebrate National Gingerbread House Day on December 12th (or any day that is convenient for you). 

Did you know that according to the Guinness Book of World Records, the world’s largest gingerbread house was built in Texas in 2013?  It was built for charity and its length measured 60 feet, its width was 42 feet, and its height at the highest point was 10 feet.  The largest gingerbread village was built in New York and had 1,251 buildings in the village.
