It was cold outside. It was warm inside. A fine day for gingerbread, Matti thought.
Matti's mother put the big blue bowl on the table and lit the stove. Matti took down a worn-looking cookbook with old-fashioned writing on the cover. He opened it up to the page that said "Gingerbread Boy."

Mmm... I can just smell the gingerbread baking whenever I read this book! Our family made a gingerbread house at church yesterday. It has been a tradition of ours for several years now. (And before that, we used to make individual "gingerbread" houses out of graham crackers here at home.) I always love decorating them with frosting and candy ~ how fun! What are some of your traditions for this time of year?
