Why Gingerbread and Christmas Go Hand-in-Hand
Now, let's dive into the fascinating connection between gingerbread and Christmas. It's not just about the taste; there's a heart-warming history behind it.
The association between gingerbread and Christmas can be traced back to the belief that spices, like ginger, had a warming effect in the winter – perfect for those cozy holiday gatherings.
In the 17th century, gingerbread took on a sacred role when it was shaped into the likeness of religious icons. Interestingly, only certified gingerbread bakers, members of an exclusive guild, could bake gingerbread throughout the year. However, during Christmas and Easter, the rules relaxed, allowing anyone to join in the gingerbread-making fun. At all other times, only guild members had the privilege.
The tradition of gingerbread houses dates back to 16th century Germany. These cookie-walled wonders, adorned with foil and gold leaf, became an integral part of Christmas celebrations. The Brothers Grimm further popularized gingerbread houses with their tale of Hansel and Gretel, who discover a house made entirely of treats deep in the forest.
