Ah, Christmas. It’s one of my absolute favorite times of the year, but oddly enough my family is not too big on the holiday cheer. We don’t put up a tree. We don’t exchange gifts or visit relatives. We don’t even go to church. In fact, last Christmas we were quite Jewish. We watched a movie (James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’) and had dinner at a Chinese food restaurant. Maybe if I make these adorable gingerbread houses and brew up some spectacular coffee, they’ll start to feel more of the holiday spirit?
