CHRISTMAS TRADITION WHEREVER I AM
If you’ve been following me for a long time you would know that each December for Christmas I make a gingerbread house, it has been a tradition that I’ve been doing since 2013, and since 2016 I have been documenting it on my blog, you can check out my gingerbread houses throughout the years here.
I am a type of person that loves tradition both old and new. The Christmas period and the Christmas holidays are my favorite holidays and there are so many traditions that we do in my household like: baking gingerbread cookies, making a ginger bread house, my parents gifting me a snowball every Christmas since I was born, making Olivier salad and so on. I am usually always home in Macedonia for the holidays and I spend it with my family, and this year is the first time that I won’t be at home for the holidays, but I will be celebrating it with my relatives in the USA which is amazing.
Anyway, if you are new here is the background of my gingerbread house making tradition. We started this tradition in 2013 and ever since then we have been making a gingerbread house. It’s a thing me and my dad do, and this is the first time I had to do it without him (which made me a bit sad), but thanks to technology he could join me through FaceTime and in a way “do it together”.
This year however I had the help of my boyfriend and Mr. Otto to create this years gingerbread house. We turned the kitchen into a bakery, got our hands sticky with frosting and decorated every part of the house. One of the perks of being in the USA over the holidays is having proper frosting (the first few years we did it at home and it was a disaster after I moved to London I bought it from there and brought it home lol), and ready gingerbread house kits and so many decorations for them.
Two hours later we were done with the house, and I am pretty satisfied with the results.
I want to wish all of you Merry Christmas and happy holidays sending you lots of love
