Gingerbread Barn-Raising at Library

Kick-off the holiday festivities and unleash your creative side with a new twist to the traditional gingerbread house on Thursday November 29th at 6:00 p.m. at the Greenville Public Library. We’ll supply the fixins; you bring the family. This event is free but the ginger-bread kits are limited. Please call 548-3915 to save your spot!

The first known recipe for gingerbread came from Greece in 2400 BC. Chinese recipes were developed during the 10th century and by the late Middle Ages, Europeans had their own version of gingerbread. Gingerbread houses, themselves, originated in Germany during the 16th century. The elaborate cookie-walled houses, decorated with foil in addition to gold leaf, became associated with Christmas tradition.
