Life-Sized Gingerbread Boys

Talk about big gingerbread boys, a recent event had them and they brought lots of smiles from kids of all ages.

The event, Winter Wonderland, took place in a mansion in Dalton, a small Western Massachusetts town.

Outside a building,the gingerbread figures welcomed visitors.

They waved, laughed and chatted  with passersby, bringing smiles to the holiday atmosphere.

There were dozens of decorated Christmas trees, elves, music and, of course,  jolly old St. Nick in his red velvet suit!

The outside lighting displays looked gorgeous against the snow and darkness of evening.

Events like this bring lots of happiness and cheer to the holiday season, don't you think?

Hi Susan,
Those gingerbread costumes are wonderful and the lights look so pretty. That would have been fun to go to!
Happy Saturday!

Love to bake gingerbread men at Christmas time. Used to make gingerbread houses when the kids were young. Have been hoping to find some time to bake some gingerbread cake before Christmas, but haven't gotten to it yet!
