“An I had but one penny in the world, thou shouldst have it to buy gingerbread.”

The tradition of making ginger cookies can be traced back to the Crusades in the eleventh century.

During this era, ginger was one of the most expensive spices and was considered a waste to use in daily meals.

Therefore, it was only until Christmas that people baked cookies with gingers, becoming the origin of gingerbread and its connection with Christmas.
