The Sweet Candy World of Gingerbread Architecture (Fourth Edition)

EXPS_33274_CWXCov06ClonewLights_RMS-1-696x696

A key Christmas feature is the gingerbread house. In Hansel and Gretel, this is the fairy tale equivalent of a windowless van with free candy. Anyway, on these you’ll find stuff like gum drops you’d never eat, candy canes, icing, and more. For many families, it’s a Christmas tradition that stores often sell gingerbread house kids. Now I don’t usually show them because they’re quite standard and lack much originality. But for some repressed artists, these kits are just child’s play. When you Google gingerbread houses, you come to some elaborate displays at some of these contests. Obviously a sign that some people have too much time on their hands. Anyway, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of sweet gingerbread houses.

  1. Every kid dreams of a candy castle.

71ba3cc033889dfa10d89b3b839e5016

However, don’t say I didn’t warn you about the cramped spaces and the smell of human waste and vomit. Seriously, wooden ships make Carnival cruise ships look like a pleasure ride on a bad day.

27. Come on up to the tooth fairy’s house.

5033dd1b5880b6bc3629d207f9b5a8e2

You can see a toothbrush near the door. Ironic that it’s made from sweets.

42. Someone’s gotten stuck in the chimney.

a3e96b27f9cd4f3aea832ae8345e5549

So why does Santa go down chimneys? Can’t he just go through the front door like everyone else? Or does that attract suspicion?

43. Have a quaint Christmas at this stone manor.

It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas with These Village Houses (Fifth Edition)

antypan07

One of my favorite Christmas posts during the holidays are my Christmas village posts. Mostly because they feature a bunch of glittery houses that sometimes light up in the snow. You can see them on shelves, with train sets, or on table displays. Of course, I don’t have a Christmas village in my house because I live with my parents, don’t have the money for it, and am very stingy with my cash. Because after all, Christmas village displays can be rather expensive. Yet, while there are plenty of Christmas houses available, I usually feature the putz houses mostly since they’re made from materials you might find in your house. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of delightful Christmas village houses.

  1. A Christmas house can really use a tower.

While many people go all out on Halloween. So it makes good business sense. Nonetheless, many prefer to make their own haunted houses in black and orange. Some might contain skeletons and candy corn covered trees. Some might have jack-o’-lanterns, trick-or-treaters, and other ghoulish monsters. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of Halloween village houses. Enjoy if you dare.

The Pastel World of Easter Village Houses (Third Edition)

3a3a6563c984a894f55e0c2ff6227ded

Now we’re on to the Easter village houses. A holdover from the similar Christmas tradition, you’ll find many of them sporting pastel and spring colors, cute animals, colored eggs, and flowers. Nonetheless, since promoting for other holidays is profitable, you’ll find many companies encourage people to create their own springtime town within the confines of their homes. Some of these might be the porcelain houses that light up from the inside. But there’s a putz set as well. These houses are usually made out of cardboard but are painted and covered with glitter. They may light up from the inside and possibly have pipe cleaner trees. Yet, they can be stunning just the same. Nonetheless, for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of Easter village houses. Enjoy.

The Sweet Candy World of Gingerbread Architecture (Third Edition)

evergreen estate gingerbread house.jpg

Of course, when you think about gingerbread houses, two things come to mind: Christmas and Hansel and Gretel Though in the latter, the gingerbread house assumed the role of a windowless van offering free candy that you should stay the hell away from. Yet, Hansel and Gretel don’t listen and a witch almost cooks them into a pot to eat. Anyway, that’s a rather unpleasant subject. Still, despite that grisly fairy tale, gingerbread houses have been a longtime Christmas tradition. Though the image above mainly consists of a traditional design, you can find so many great gingerbread creations with the help of a Google search. During the holiday season, you’ll find many gingerbread house competitions throughout the country and the world. Though you’ll also find plenty of gingerbread renditions of landmarks and fictional settings. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another assortment of gingerbread creations. Enjoy.
