Baked gingerbread, frosting to hold the pieces together, candies for decorations... what's not to love about gingerbread houses? Even the immortal Will Shakespeare once said, "And I had but one penny in the world, thou should'st have it to buy gingerbread." Since before Shakespeare's day, gingerbread houses have been a sure sign of the upcoming holiday season, a fun way for families and friends to come together.
Stroll through our Christmas department soon and let our gingerbread decor inspire you... small or large houses, lighted ones too, candy cane trees, nutcracker "cooks" that would brighten up your tablescape, even a gingerbread-themed train. Among the colorful lights and cheery Christmas decorations, gingerbread creations have always stood out as almost too ornate to eat. And while you can't eat ours, you CAN begin your own collection and enjoy the gingerbread tradition for years to come.
