A fine day for gingerbread...

An excerpt:

     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?
