The Christmas countdown has begun and this is the first time in a long time since I’ve been excited about the holiday. The Christmas spirit is high this year for me, and part of the tradition being in Seattle at this time of the year is seeing the Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton, a popular event for Seattleites and visitors alike.
It is the 26th year of the Gingerbread Village, and the current theme is How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Coupled with the Gingerbread Village is always the Christmas tree, which matches the theme. So, the tree for this year is the Grinch Tree.
Changes have been made since our last visit in 2012. The Gingerbread Village has been moved inside a room and the display is much smaller. Instead of one big station like in the past, there were only four stations of gingerbread houses. Despite its smaller size, it is still fantastic as always. Below are some of the pictures I took of the scenes from How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Look at the details of the design, all decked out with sweets.
The Grinch’s Lair
It was hard to choose, but I think this scene was our favorite out of them all.
I forgot to look at the names of the next two themes, but they were just as awesome as the last.
The picture of the girl doesn’t do it justice. In person, you can see how wild her hair is made from candy. I mean, it is amazing and amusing at the same time.
