Ice skating, music, holiday toys, a winter lantern procession, crafts, free museum and garden entry… Sound good? If you missed Holiday CircleFest in 2014, don’t worry, it’s an annual affair (the 22nd one will occur Sunday, Dec. 6).

This was a fine, festive way to introduce my out-of-town friend to so much of what University Circle has to offer. And, as we both are fond of plants, the Cleveland Botanical Garden was a must—including Glow, the garden’s third annual winter spectacular to “transport you to a world full of seasonal cheer”: a whimsical train ride, trees decorated by affiliated garden clubs, a wishing tree and, my favorite, the gingerbread house competition. These sweet, creative buildings are designed by families, kids and pros across Northeast Ohio, and I believe it when the garden says that every year, “thousands of visitors come to marvel at every graham cracker shingle, candy cane lamppost and gum drop keystone.” It sure felt like thousands of people were there that day, in every nook and cranny…

Did you have a favorite gingerbread house? What edible material most stood out to you?
