Origin of The Gingerbread Man
I’m a teacher so of course, I had to find out where this whole idea of gingerbread men came from. Haven’t you ever wondered why in the world we make gingerbread people?
Well, I looked it up and the idea for gingerbread man cookies actually started with Queen Elizabeth I of England. She had gingerbread cookies made in the likeness of important guests to present them with a sweet and special treat when they were visiting.
The gingerbread man was then made widely popular thanks to the children’s fairy tale story The Gingerbread Man which is about an old couple who bakes a gingerbread boy who comes to life and runs away from the little old woman and little old man, only to be chased by a whole host of hungry farm animals and finally devoured.
Gingerbread houses were made popular by the story of Hansel and Gretel.
Now how did all this gingerbread stuff end up getting associated with Christmas?
Well apparently in the 17th century, gingerbread served a religious purpose and since it was seen as sacred, only specially trained gingerbread guild members were permitted to make it. That is, except for Christmas and Easter.
It seems this tradition kind of stuff and now we associate Christmas with gingerbread.
Don’t ask me why it didn’t become a thing for Easter. No idea.
Now that we’ve wrapped up a history lesson you didn’t ask for, let’s check out those coloring pages!
