ginger bread: National Ginger Bread House Day - 12/12/16 06:07 AM
It's National Ginger Bread House Day! Ginger Bread has a long history dating back to the 17th Century where it was sold at fairs as cookies to celebrate St Bartholomew. In the 1800s it was romanticized in honor of Hansel and Gretel, the two children abandoned in the woods by destitute parents. They discovered the first tiny house made of cake, cookies and candy long before HGTV. Hansel became a Realtor, he sells tiny houses in southern Germany.  Gretel is the baker/designer with a sweet touch. They now host their own make over show called, "Love it or Eat it."
