It's not everyday that you see a full-sized Gingerbread Man trying to help his fellow pastries and cookies escape from the bakery, but when you do, you'd better have your camera ready.
This is Asheville, where almost anything can happen. And this was the scene downtown yesterday on Christmas Eve. I was doing a little last minute Christmas shopping at the local bookstore and as I came around the corner, this is what I saw :)
Posting just for grins, to entertain you a little on this special day.
Merry Christmas everyone!

vicious gingerbread man!
or maybe it is a poor guy, bitten by a radioactive donut that managed to escape from jason's donut factory. i do have a wide smile upon seeing this, thank you :)

Little last minute shopping at bookstore, probably to help Santa with gifts. How funny this big Gingerbread Man, funny his reflection. And did he succeed? I suppose not, the door is closed. Amusing note.
Have a nice day after holidays. I like it, I can finally rest after all preparations and eatings during Christmas.

Smiling I am, what a strange and very cool image! What I truly love here is that we can see the gingerbread mans face in the reflection, and he does look shocked at what is going on inside, perhaps his brother having his legs eaten :) Perfect timing, and one of those moments that proves we should never ever leave out cameras down. Brilliant.
All the best

For some reason this reminded me of my wife putting lipstick on.
Fond Memories, made me smile.
Happy New Year.

This is really an unusual scene and probably a surprise for the clientes of the café!
Good capture! I like the reflection of his face on the window:)!
Have a great New Year!
