Day 6: Gingerbread "Men"

Today I made a batch of gingerbread...things...I only had a lady, a snowman, a star and a candy cane cut out, so there's no 'man' but I figured it'd be best to call them by the original name rather than gingerbread things.

Did you know that the word mistletoe literally means “dung twig”. The name for mistletoe comes from the fact that mistletoe tends to grown from bird droppings that have fallen on trees, (the seeds passed through the digestive tract).  When the plant was given this name, the people didn’t know anything about that, but they observed that mistletoe seemed to come from bird droppings on trees, thus “mistle” or “missel”, which meant basically “dung”, and “toe”, which came from the Anglo-Saxon “tan” meaning “twig”..........kind of takes the romance of kissing under mistletoe away....

The song of the day is Baby it's Cold Outside; I have had it stuck in my head ALL DAY! 
Merry Christmas!
