Saturday December 10, 2016 is Gingerbread Decorating Day.

““Run, run as fast as you can! You can’t catch me. I’m the Gingerbread Man!” .

December 13th means that Christmas is creeping closer and closer, and it’s getting to be time to prepare for this holiday associated with so many traditions. One of those traditions is the baking of gingerbread. This day is here to help all kids, from ages 1 to 92, get as much fun out of the season as possible.

Gingerbread was sold in monasteries and pharmacies, where it was thought to have medicinal properties. In 1875, the gingerbread man was introduced to holiday traditions through a fairytale, where he was depicted as a holiday treat.

The best way to celebrate this day is to make your very own gingerbread cookies and then proceed to decorate them. It can be most fun when each member of the family makes, bakes and decorates his or her own gingerbread man. Gingerbread can be decorated with many different things, from a simple icing made from just water and icing sugar, to more creative icings, like lemon or butter cream icing.

Gingerbread men can also be made into cookie sandwiches, with delectable fillings made with vanilla or lemon cream, orange butter cream, or even ice cream! If you’re feeling particularly ambitious and confident, you could decide to make a gingerbread house. Gingerbread houses really allow for a lot of creativity, as they can be decorated with virtually anything that strikes your fancy, like gumdrops, candy canes, or peppermints, to name but a few.

After you’ve made and decorated your gingerbread, members of the family can exchange cookies, and the cookies can then be eaten or hung up on the Christmas tree as decorations. Gingerbread tends to keep for long periods of time, so there is no need to worry that the cookies will start to rot or crumble.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’
