Happy Gingerbread House Day!
Gingerbread House Day on December 12th recognizes a family tradition for many around the country.Disney Food Blog Guide (DFBGuide) gave its viewers a tour of these "winter wonderlands" made of baked goods in Disney World Gingerbread House Tour 2019!
A favorite food of an Armenian monk, Gregory of Nicopolis, brought gingerbread to Europe around 992 AD and taught French Christians to bake it. Since gingerbread was often used in religious ceremonies, monks baked to be sturdy to molded into images of saints.
We can thank the Brothers’ Grimm for a gingerbread house, though. Through their tale of Hansel and Gretel, they introduce an evil witch who lives in a house made of gingerbread. It didn’t take long for the German gingerbread guilds to pick up the idea. Soon, they put gingerbread houses to a more festive use making snowy cottages made from the spicy-sweet treat.
Today, we can spend the day baking, cutting, and building to our heart’s delight. Kits take some steps out of the process so we can get right down to constructing our winter wonderlands.
It's that time of year again! The Disney World gingerbread houses are HERE and we're taking you on a tour to visit ALL of them, including some brand new displays for 2019!This is the third year DFBGuide has produced a video on Walt Disney World's gingerbread houses. I won't embed them as well, as they might be repetitious and I don't feel like working that hard today. Besides, I'm an environmentalist; not only do I recycle, I conserve my resources.
Yes, I'm in an "I can't be all DOOM all the time" mood today. I won't be much more serious tomorrow, as it will be Friday the 13th. Stay tuned!
