Day 8: Gingerbread
When we lived in Germany, we all looked forward to Christmas as it brought the Kris Kringle market in the large towns like Frankfurt. Our family would travel to one of these markets...usually with the B family I think.
They take their gingerbread seriously over there. I LOVED going to the gingerbread stands and picking out a piece for under the tree. We also loved all the ornaments stands and brochen (bread) stands. Kris Kringle Markets are one of those childhood memories that I cherish.
Here in the states gingerbread just doesn't have the same reputation. That's probably a good thing since hubs hates ginger. LOL!
I keep telling myself I should get one of those kits to do a house with the kids. I almost did this year...but they are rather expensive. I remember and aunt did these when I was very little, and mom gave it a try a time or two. Maybe next year.
How about you? Do you like gingerbread? Do you make a gingerbread house at Christmas?
