Gingerbread Houses

December 11, 2009 by USA Post 

Gingerbread Houses, Gingerbread houses are an annual holiday tradition for our family.  We make gingerbread houses at home and in a community library program.  I just registered to make gingerbread houses at the library next Thursday.

We love to make gingerbread houses and eat the candies along the way.  I remember when my children made their first independent gingerbread houses in preschool.  They were so proud of the milk cartons transformed into gingerbread houses with crackers and gum drops.

I live to buy gingerbread houses in kits.  It makes it easier since we don’t eat the house anyway.  I use gingerbread houses as centerpieces in my dining room and living room.  Gingerbread house kits are usually about $10 to $25.  You can find them at major retailers such as Kmart and Walmart as well as specialty shops.

Homemade gingerbread houses are beautiful.  I have a friend who runs estate and tag sales.  She makes homemade gingerbread houses for her valued clients.  It is a delightfully traditional way to express gratitude for their business.  I’m not quite as enterprising myself…

I do look forward to receiving a free kit at the library to make one of our gingerbread houses.  We’ll listen to Christmas Music Online Free, nibble on candy and build a gingerbread house as a family.  Gingerbread houses are all about tradition.

Do you make gingerbread houses for the holidays?  What type of gingerbread houses do you create?

Here’s a video about how to make a gingerbread house from YouTube:
