Happy National Gingerbread House Day

 Aren't the holidays wonderful?  What with Chanukah (Catukah) and Catmas, there is no end to the goodies in which we are privileged to partake.  So our human threw caution to the winds and got us this delectable house to inhabit.  Smells heavenly. Then she said she was going to consume it...what kind of unfairness if that? We were told if we were good and stay here long enough for a photo-op, catnip treats are in the offing.  But should we believe her?

Some cool facts about Gingerbread Houses & National Gingerbread House Day:

1) Gingerbread houses gained recognition after Hansel & Gretel, the famous fairy tale, was published by the Grimm Brothers!

2) There is a Swedish tradition in which people use gingerbread to make a wish.

3) The largest gingerbread house is 2520 square feet large, 21 feet high, 35 million calories & is located in Bryan, Texas, 90 Miles Northwest of Houston - According to the Guiness World Book of Records.

Now that you know all that we know...we are joining Athena & Marie' Cat-urday Hop today!
