  • We have long tradition to make some building out of gingerbread every Christmas. In the middle of January last pieces of walls are eaten. Different building every year.

    One year we built Taj Mahal. It took over twenty years for one thousand elephants and 20 000 construction workers to build real Taj Mahal in 1600s. We had to make ours in one day by threesome. Instead of emeralds and other gemstones we had to be content with sprinkles and nonpareils. Other year we built this lighthouse, it suits especially well for us, living by the sea.

    So farewell the Christmas time with this picture, and may the real lighthouses light up the Seven Seas. We have seen enough shipwrecks already for 2012.
