No, they don’t gossip behind your back. This research, from The Garbing Reed Institute in Bern tells us that when faced with eating a gingerbread man, 76% of consumers feel some degree of guilt.
- Snapping off a limb (leg): Indicates a tentative nature, a desire to be liked and an unwillingness to be confrontational. Extremely insecure, often puts the needs of others before themselves.
- Snapping off a limb (arm): Confident and inclusive. An achiever who is prepared to act even if those actions might incur some risk. A leader who is comfortable making decisions.
- Biting off a limb (arm/leg): Biting off a limb from a whole gingerbread man suggests that the more negative traits indicated above can be more prevalent. Tentativeness leans towards sloth – decisiveness can tend to manifest itself as bossiness.
- Snapping off the head: Forthright, somewhat aggressive with narcissistic tendencies. Little regard for the views of others. Generally unaware of the effect ones actions are having on others.
- Biting off the head: Downright nasty bit of work (paraphrasing here). Self-centred despot with no time for the weak or those who do not conform. Destined for board level positions and early retirement on a fat pension.
- Breaking in half/random destruction: One of life’s dreamers. Happy to go with the flow and rub along. Can be prone to introspection, which might be interpreted as selfishness. Never knowingly upsets anyone – but never the first to volunteer.
- All in one go: Dr Baring didn’t actually address this one. But it’s not hard to interpret. Your just damn greedy!” – This was Derek Dog’s technique. We baked and decorated Gingerbread trees one Christmas, put a ribbon through a hole and hung them on the Christmas tree. We heard an odd noise as we went, then realised it was crunching – Derek was munching as we hung!!!
Wishing you all a Happy Christmas – Heidi X
