When you think about Christmas and the holidays, what do you think of? No, after presents. For me -- I think of decorating the home. And my #1 favorite Christmas decoration? The gingerbread house. Well get this, the Texas A&M Traditions club has officially broken the Guinness World Record for World's Largest Gingerbread House with a 39,201.8-cubic-foot structure of tastiness. That's right, the World's Largest Gingerbread House is currently standing in Bryan, Texas.
Made with 1,800 pounds of butter, 2,925 pounds of brown sugar, 7,200 eggs, 225 gallons of molasses, 7,200 pounds of all-purpose flour, 1,090 ounces of ground ginger, 720 ounces of ground cinnamon, and 360 ounces of baking soda -- this house is no laughing matter.
And get this: you can ACTUALLY walk through it!!
I know. It's. Awesome. Until December 14 visitors can pay to walk through the structure, and all proceeds go to the St. Joseph Level II Trauma Center in Bryan. A delicious world record for a great cause? Sounds fabulous to me.

And if you thought the house was amazing, get this -- there's 2,500 pounds of candy inside! The Traditions Club even broke down the nutritional information: a whopping 35,823,400 calories.
Mmmm, Merry Christmas to all!
