Catching the festive gingerbread spirit

Melbourne first responder families had a sweet day out, decorating their very own gingerbread houses for Christmas.

The hot day added a challenge: the icing melted a little, causing a few construction issues, but nothing could get in the way of the fun all the participants had.

“What a great way to get together with the family and meet others before Christmas,” one participant said.

Another added, “I have really enjoyed the way we as a family can come together and meet other people. We look forward to getting involved in 2021.”

We have our suspicions that many of the construction tools (AKA lollies) did not make it onto the house – but then again, isn’t that half the fun of making a gingerbread house?
