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.

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.

Now that I put up some of my crazy Christmas posts, I return to some of the nice decorations. Though plenty might opt for a simple Christmas tree, a wreath, lights, and other trimmings, some may go over the top. Among these, you might find a Christmas village within one’s home with putz or porcelain houses that may light up a winter wonderland when the lights are out. You might find it on a tree like display like this one. You may find it on a large table. Or you might see it under the tree with a toy train track. Since it’s the Christmas season, you’ll find plenty of companies selling these cute Christmas houses so people can build their own yuletide towns. Yet, some may prefer the old-fashioned putz houses and make their own. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasury of cute Christmas village houses. Enjoy.
