Each year at Christmas time, my children enjoy creating a gingerbread house. They use icing and candies to decorate it, calling to mind the witch’s house in the story of Hansel and Gretel.
When we break off a piece of this house to taste, however, we are not in danger of being captured and eaten by an evil witch! What we are in danger of, though, is being tempted to break off another piece to savour the taste of the gingerbread.
What I enjoy the most of our gingerbread house tradition is the joy my children experience as they work on their creation. And the scent of the gingerbread as it permeates our home.
Do you enjoy making gingerbread houses in your home?
