I was just struck by a funny (at the time) memory of being at a Christmas party many years ago. I was in my early 20s, as were most of the other guests.
As the night wore on and we drank too much, someone plucked a piece of candy off of a very large gingerbread house that was the centerpiece on the dining room table. Pretty soon, a group of us were picking candy off the house.
The host was not happy with us.
Does anyone eat their gingerbread houses?
Ours will go outside for the animals after New Years.
