It’s an age-old tradition during the holiday season. Decorating gingerbread houses began centuries ago and remains popular today.
Williston schoolkids participated in a gingerbread design class at the James Memorial Art Center. The children ranged in age from first to sixth grade. A local donor sponsored 8 of the children to attend the class free of charge.
“It’s really, really fun. I know that. And you meet a lot of new friends,” said third-grader Jaden Jones.
When asked if he was planning to tackle the gingerbread house all at once, Jones replied,
“Maybe some today and some tomorrow.”
Third grader Addison Elsbernd gave us a tour of her gingerbread house, which was actually a church.
“This is the walkway, these are the Christmas lights. The windows, and the door,” said Elsbernd.
Both of them said they were planning to share their gingerbread houses with family members.
