The Gingerbread Man Is Coming to Town!

Once upon a time, there was a father who really loved gingerbread men. So, he made up a Christmas tradition for his sons and daughter. On Christmas Eve the Gingerbread Man would come to town and give all the children their very own gingerbread men to eat.

This father was my grandfather and my father has passed this tradition down to me. In fact, although I am in my 40s and live several hundred miles away, I can expect a gingerbread man to be mailed to me every year.

The funny thing is, when I was growing up, I thought this was some old Scottish tradition. Nope … just my grandad loving his gingerbread.

Good thing I love gingerbread, too. I can tell you, I really look forward to that package every year!

Do you have any special Holiday traditions that are unique to your family? I’d love to hear about them!
