Holiday Gingerbread Village

Here’s a classic post from 2017. Enjoy while I try to create my own gingerbread house this year!

In Anchorage, Alaska, the Captain Cook Hotel displays a gingerbread village during the holidays. Chef Joe Hickel makes it from scratch every year, and it is an amazing thing to see. It’s part of our family’s holiday tradition; we used to take our daughter there before going to Grandma’s on Christmas Eve, and now that she’s grown and out of the house, my husband and I see it as part of our New Year’s Eve celebration. Here are a few photos from last year:

Enjoy the holiday season, however you like to celebrate!

I love to share my passion for Alaska and its history in my writing for young adults and their grown ups.
