Did you know the first edible gingerbread figures were thought to have been made in the 16th century and were popular at the court of Elizabeth 1 of England, she had the gingerbread figures made and presented in the likeness of some of her important guests.
The gingerbread theme continues with this adorable RAZ gingerbread figure clutching a green striped candy cane, these decorations really do look good enough to eat! and these hanging gingerbread men will look great on the Christmas tree.
In 17th century Europe only professional gingerbread makers (like this Kringle Company Santa!) were permitted to make gingerbread except at Christmas time and Easter. Decorated gingerbread was only sold in special shops or at seasonal markets and the gingerbread was shaped into hearts, stars, soldiers or animals.
The tradition of making decorated gingerbread houses started in Germany in the early 1800s. At that time Grimm's fairy tale Hansel and Gretel was popular. This is the story of two children abandoned in the forest where they find an edible house made of bread with sugar decorations. Shortly after German bakers started to make ornamented fairy tale houses of gingerbread and thus began a Christmas tradition.
This lovely red and white curl decorations look fabulous hung in your Christmas Tree, and will compliment your candy cane or gingerbread look. This candy cane inspired Christmas ribbon will provide you with many decorating options including your Christmas Tree, a festive wreath or Christmas rope to fence off your Christmas display.
