Gingerbread House Day

December 12th marks Gingerbread House Day, a cherished family custom observed by many nationwide. Gingerbread, initially popularized by an Armenian monk named Gregory of Nicopolis circa 992 AD, made its way to Europe. Gregory not only introduced gingerbread but also imparted baking techniques to French Christians. Primarily utilized in religious rituals, gingerbread became a staple in monastery kitchens, crafted to endure and fashioned into intricate depictions of saints.
