10 Fun Facts about Gingerbread

I adore ginger in almost any form. I've eaten it to avoid seasickness, I guzzle ginger ale and for a good ginger cookie I will travel many miles. As you can imagine, December is a ginger lover's delight with all the gingerbread treats that abound.I like gingerbread so much that when I taught I even designed a classroom activity to teach body parts and ready them for a doctor skit using, you guessed it, gingerbread cookies.

Sipping my gingerbread  flavored coffee I mused, what do I really know about gingerbread? I mean besides that's it's delicious? From this thought a blog post was born.

Enjoy these 10 fun facts about gingerbread as I eat a gingerbread cookie and plan a gingerbread quilt.  Planning a quilt is hard work, maybe I'll have two cookies.

Doesn't that make you want to eat some gingerbread? Just the idea of that makes me sew happy!
