For weeks I have resisted relegating the gingerbread house to the trash. But with spring arriving today, it had lost its holiday shine and was starting to look like disorganized clutter on the dining room table. So late yesterday afternoon, with the day-before-spring snowflakes still falling, I put it outdoors as a wildlife donation, and hope that the squirrels will have a feast.

When I was a kid, my friends mother had a gingerbread house smashing party. She set the house in the middle of the table, kids all around and set a timer for the signal to start. It was so much fun. I think she did it in early January, so it wasn’t too stale yet. Mostly we picked all the candy off and tossed the gingerbread. I hope your squirrels have as much fun.
Such fun, Mary Lou! The squirrels did indeed enjoy their feast, and now I’m watching the early signs of spring: fresh perennial sprouts in the ground, new growth on the shrubs.
It’s a grand setting for such a perfect gingerbread house. Let’s frame it and maybe inspiration will flow. Many thanks.
Love the pic! Oh yeah, those squirrels are gonna be running around like crazy after gorging themselves on sugar. 😉
I always feed our gingerbread houses to my chickens! They feast on them. I’m sure your squirrels will have a sugar high.
