The German Christmas Markets are famous worldwide- every city and town hosts a Christmas market, whether large or small and Germany is transformed into one giant Christmas market where you can buy Christmas gifts and treasures to your heart’s delight. The markets give the cities a holiday atmosphere for the month leading up to Christmas, leaving the cities feeling empty and lonely after a month of bright lights and the mixed smells of Gingerbread, chocolate, Gluhwein and grilled sausages.
The traditions of the Christmas markets date back to the middle ages and turn German towns and cities into festive fairy tale type scenes. Christmas markets are held during the four weeks of Advent and include booths and stalls set up in town centers around Germany, along with plenty of great Christmas decorations and entertainment. Huge Christmas trees are erected and the shops sell Christmas decorations, ornaments, wooden toys, nutcrackers, figurines, gifts, clothing, candles, foods, local arts and crafts and a lot more.
Bands and choral groups entertain shoppers with favorite Christmas carols and hymns. You can buy fresh gingerbread, or a whole gingerbread house, delight in the smells of mulled wine, spices and roasted chestnuts and almonds and sausages as well as a wide array of other foods and drinks.
Each German Christmas Market has its own personality but regardless of which one you go to you are sure to find plenty of Christmas treasures to bring home as well as be able to revel in the Christmas atmosphere that Germany offers.
So, if you have the opportunity to travel to one Germany’s Christmas markets, enjoy the experience and all the sights and sounds you will take in and especially the Gingerbread!
I just discovered that famed dinnerware manufacturer Villeroy & Boch from Germany and Luxembourg, have Gingerbread decorations and collectibles! The Ginger Fancy collection also includes tree ornaments, candle holders, and cookie jars in such motifs as Santa Claus, Frosty the Snowman, Gingerbread Man & Woman, all of which make great gifts and decorations for the holidays, and if you love Gingerbread as much as me – then keep these out All Year Round.
We were at Costco yesterday for our weekly trip and they have started setting out their Christmas and holiday items and we found a whole area of Gingerbread House kits from Wonka. Looks like these kits are pretty user and kid friendly and would be a lot of fun to put one together with your kids or if you are a teacher or teach bible class this would be a fun class project for young kids. If you are a Costco regular, you know to buy these kits now because they will sell out and you’ll need to wait till next year to find them again and at $9.95 – it is a deal as they come with pretty much all you need. Have Fun!
Came upon this really neat composition of Gingerbread and thought I would share it with my fellow GIngerbread fans!
Gingerbread, with its myriad forms, alluring aromas, and symbolic significance, has been a quintessential holiday treat for centuries. At this time of year Gingerbread men begin to run amok in the kitchen, sticky fingers stud gaily decorated gingerbread houses with edible decor, and pastry chefs produce imaginative confections to delight the eye and the palette. As a life-long Gingerbread enthusiast, I’ve munched on all manner of piquant and pungent cakes and cookies, from the delicate ginger wafers baked by descendants of the Moravian settlers in North Carolina to the dense pain d’épices of Dijon, France. But I’ve refrained from sampling some splendid creations that were just too dazzling to destroy. Read More.
We were out and about this weekend and stopped at our local Barnes and Noble bookstore and were pleased to find these cute plush Gingerbead kids sitting in a Gingerbread mug ready to go home with you!

The Christmas holidays are fast approaching and these cuties will surely be snapped right up so remember to take some time out for yourself and perhaps enjoy a Gingerbread Latte right from one of these Gingerbread mugs.
