National Gingerbread Cookie Day on November 21st encourages us to grab the rolling pin and cookie cutters. The baking will warm the home and decorating will inspire us to design tasty cookies while making memories!

National Gingerbread Day takes place on June 5. A favorite food of an Armenian monk, Gregory of Nicopolis, brought gingerbread to Europe around 992 AD and taught French Christians to bake it. Gingerbread was often used in religious ceremonies and was baked to be sturdy as it was usually molded into images of saints.

Gingerbread cookies make sturdy walls for houses (perfect for National Gingerbread House Day on December 12) and tasty gingerbread families that can be decorated by the children in your home.

 HOW TO OBSERVE #GingerbreadCookieDay

Invite friends to help you bake and decorate.  Get the children involved and continue family traditions.  Read the story of the gingerbread man.  Use #GingerbreadCookieDay to share on social media.
