Gingerly Carrying the Gingerbread House
With the sort of delicacy one associates with patient arrivals, gingerbread houses were delivered to the front door of the Clinical Center on the morning of Dec. 7, which was the start of NIH’s 12th annual Gingerbread House Decorating Contest.
Several creations were borne lovingly on wheeled aluminum gurneys, some of which were carried, to prevent vibrations from damaging the houses.
Visitors to the display were invited to vote for their favorite houses, either by paper ballot or on Facebook. The Foundation for the National Institutes of Health donated the gingerbread house kits. From there, imaginations soared.
