Gingerbread Architecture: An Amazing Holiday Tradition

What is your favorite handmade holiday tradition? Mine are the spectacular gingerbread "houses" that my sister and her family put together every year! They are so amazing in complexity, size, detail and architectural accuracy. In the past years they have created a myriad of different buildings including the Eiffel Tower and Rockefeller Center. I have included pictures below of these fantastic creations, enjoy!
