Gingerbread House Day!
_____________________________________________________

What does this holiday celebrate?
It celebrates the gingerbread house! This holiday is about celebrating the fun of building gingerbread houses and the fun in eating them too.

Origin of this Holiday
I wonder why the month of December was picked to celebrate this holiday and why the 12th day?? That's the question, but unfortunately...

our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day.
This holiday is referred to as a "National" day.  However, we did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day. Even though we didn't, this is still a holiday that is publicized to celebrate.
So have fun with it and celebrate it!

When is this holiday celebrated?
There's a bit of confusion on the date of this holiday. Our research shows this holiday has been publicized with 5 different dates. The date referred to the most is November 10 and December 12. We think the confusion comes from so many gingerbread house building contests that are held during the holidays; that advertise by saying "It's Gingerbread House Day."  referring to the contest and not the actual holiday date.
