My World Tuesday: Visions, Dancing










St. George's Episcopal Church in Middlebury, Connecticut, has displayed a gingerbread village every year for the past 43 years, and it is a high point of the Christmas season. Everything is handmade, and everything is edible, and the creative geniuses who participate in this event never disappoint. This year's theme is books, and we came across everything from Gone with the Wind to The Magic Treehouse to Harry Potter to Snoopy. Good people, good fun, good start to this wonderful season.

  6. Oh boy do I love Christmas Villages made out of gingerbread!
    But do people actually eat them afterwards?
    I made a few houses and just could not get to have it broken down to eat. When is the right time to eat it?
    Or do you begin by slowly picking off the candies? lol
    I wish I could take pictures cause we have so much to photograph here but I always feel some one will not like it.Even taking pics off google. images makes me feel bad but then I found some of mine up on it so I figure some one will also use my pics so I do not feel so bad anymore. lol

  7. What a great idea to create all those edible houses, and parts of stories, and books. Almost a pity to eat all those lovely things. Some of them are so beautiful that they should be preserved.
