Weekly Photo Challenge: Admiration “Pepperkakebyen”

The beautiful “pepperkakebyen” (in Norwegian) or “gingerbread city” is a community activity which I admire very much. A ginger bread city is created by Bergen municipality since 1991 during Christmas every year.

Almost all kindergardens and schools, many companies and thousands of families send their contribution for this event. Thousands of young and old people are involved in the activity. I have met families with young kids who plan their contribution in advance and it has become family tradition during Christmas. It is world’s largest and finest gingerbread city.
