LEGO Gingerbread Houses!

Here's a little Advent Madness Extra!

I'm a decent LEGO builder - but often I'm amazed at the creations from the real masters out there. Among those master builders is one of my idols, Mariann Asanuma. Recently, she created an amazing LEGO Gingerbread House in micro-scale for Brickjournal. There's even a set of instructions so you can build your own!

So I did.

Of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone. Ignoring the elegant lines of Mariann's model, I made a few tweaks to my own little gingerbread house mod-build.

It is a cute little house, and it sure looks festive. But what exactly has gingerbread to do with advent or Christmas?

You haven't seen Gringerbread house kits all over the Christmas aisles? They're pretty much a holiday tradition from what I've seen.
