Win a Gingerbread House Kit - Week 1



Wow! You sent us a broad range of stories and we loved reading each one. It was very difficult to select a winner and there were two that were very close. In the end we went with Mel who told us:

"Instead of bringing a plate of food our untraditional tradition is to bring an empty plate and decorate it with memories and milestones for the year with food safe pens and paints! We use the past year’s plates to serve the food. It’s a great way to look back and tell stories, this year will be our 10th year doing it!"

You can read the rest of the entires at the bottom of this page. Thank you to everyone who entered and be sure to have another go in our next contest.

A gingerbread house is creative, stress-free way of preparing for Xmas. If you’re hosting Christmas, or asked to bring a plate then don’t be boring. A salad is often not eaten. I take the gingerbread house and it’s always a big hit. It’s cost effective and helps keep the budget intact. A recent Finder study revealed that most Australians will still be in debt from Christmas next Easter . Eep! The average Australian spends roughly $1178 on Christmas. A cheerful gingerbread house is festive, traditional and helps with the debt hangover. And it can enjoyed on Boxing Day too.

Every year on Christmas Eve we have a special present from Grandad.

My Grandad loved Christmas and he loved the excitement of when he was alive of handing out a lucky-dip present to members of the family.

It’s been 16 years since he passed and my Mum carries on the lucky-dip a present from Grandad, the brightest star in the sky.

Every Christmas Eve, my family leaves a trail of mixed nuts down our driveway to attract Santa’s reindeer. It’s a good luck charm because Santa has never forgotten to visit. Coincidentally, we also attract ants but this is one tradition that doesn’t cost an……….. ‘almond a leg’ !

We definitely skip the Turkey, we always have a very large pavlova, that all the family decorate together on Christmas day, a joint effort. I would love a gingerbread house kit.
