Gingerbread House Contest Did you know that the first gingerbread houses were a result of the Grimm’s fairytale “Hansel & Gretel”?  In the story the two children wonder into the forest in search of an edible house made of bread with sugar decorations.  After the publication of the book, German bakers began baking Gingerbread houses during Christmas.  Our annual Gingerbread house contest is now happening in the library.  Draw ends on Thursday, December 22nd.  So hurry on down to the library and enter the contest for a chance to win the Gingerbread house.
