Dec 6th is a common gingerbread baking day here in Finland. For me personally our Independence Day has been a day without that many traditions. That all changed a couple of years ago when we decided to make that day our Gingerbread House Making Day along with the family of my bestie. Since then we spend that day having so much fun together, and both kids and adults produce the most amazing creations.
These are from a few years back. Last year my eyes ached too much so I couldn’t take pictures, and least of all edit them, but it was superfun all the same! I like documenting things here on the blog, but simply putting phone pictures onto IG stories has its own charm. It sort of fits with the gingerbread theme of beauty in the moment.
Happy 2nd Advent everyone, and here’s to celebrating Finland tomorrow, with candles and gingerbread and whatever you choose!
