Last week I did two new things that I have never done before in my life. I went wassailing, and I made a gingerbread house.
There was wassailing in Richland last week, so I went with my friends. The whole reason we went was because we wanted free hot chocolate and cookies. It turned out to be a lot of fun, and the cookies were really good.
In Germany we don’t have wassailing. We have Christmas markets which are pretty similar but a little bit different. You can get hot chocolate and cookies too, but you have to pay for that. Also you can get little Christmas accessories.
On Saturday, I made my first gingerbread house ever. My friend invited me and a few other friends over to her house. We all brought our own gingerbread house kit and then we started. Mine turned out really good, but one of my friends gingerbread house turned out really bad and it felt apart the whole time which was really funny. I’m not going to eat my gingerbread house, because its my first one ever, and it’s way too pretty.
I’m planning on making my own gingerbread house next year too, but then with my friends in Germany.
