Crafting & Recipes

Build a Gingerbread House

Inspired by the tale of Hansel and Gretel, bakeries in Germany began decorating fancy gingerbread houses in the early 1800s. You can get a fancy pattern or informal slabs glued together with icing. Decorate with all your favourite candies. Today, grocery stores carry pre-baked kits that only need to be assembled and decorated or you can go all out and make your own Lebkuchenhaus, German Swiss Chalet Gingerbread House Dough.

Craft Ideas

Grab the kids, craft supplies and turn up Today's Concert and get crafting. Make a suncatcher Nativity scene with these step-by-step instructions or create your own Advent Calendar from now to Christmas by following this video.

My husband's family is German and up until we visited the Christkindl Market a few years ago I only had stories and some samplings of the different Christmas foods from Germany from his family. Until we visited your wonderful market I never really understood the fascination my husband has always had for German Christmas. Since that first visit my husband starts planning our next visit in October! He wouldn't miss it for the world and I have come to appreciate his heritage even more through experiencing this bit of Germany in Canada! Every year we bring our teenagers and invite our friends. Thank you for all your hard work - Christmas isn't Christmas for us now without the Christkindl Market!
