Gabe Sanders hi Gabe... what's nice about the Ballantyne Hotel is that after you're done checking out all the gingerbread houses, you can have a nice old-fashioned tea or a drink in a great bar. The Ballantyne Hotel is gorgeous at this time of year.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila and Larry... I remember the first year they announced the gingerbread house competition... way fewer entries. Now people can't wait to put their entries in.

Michael Jacobs hi Michael... you hit then nail on the head... viewing the gingerbread house lane is fun for kids of all ages... and it's true artistry at play with many of them, especially the professional entries. But the ones done by kids are fun too.

Maria Sapio hi Maria... not one of my "gifts" either. I've only ever made one in my entire life with our granddaughter maybe 10 years ago... she was happy, but I was a bit underwhelmed by my finished product.

Hi Nina Hollander, I've never made a gingerbread house, ever and no desire to make one either, however, I love looking at all the creative ones made by others. If I was in the area, I would definitely go to this annual event at least once.

Beth Atalay hi Beth... I only ever made one gingerbread house and it was no work of art... but my granddaughter was desperate for me to help her. It was like the blind leading the blind... but we had a good time.
