T'was The Night Before Christmas 2017

Twas the night before Christmas and Haegele's was bustling!
No sleep for our bakers, like elves they've been hustling...

Our bakery will be open Sunday Christmas Eve from 6am-2pm. It's the last call, so to speak for many of our holiday specialties. It's been an extremely busy week but as you can tell from the picture above, there's no better place to get into the "spirit" of the holidays than at a gingerbread shop! Though the hours can be taxing and the work physically laborious, the blessings are immeasurable. The appreciation from our customers is like something right out of the movie "It's a wonderful life". From tomato pies to hoagie trays, meals have been delivered providing sustenance for both body and soul. Cards, and visits, and phone calls of well wishes, to gifts of poinsettias and chocolates seem to weave throughout our work day. Customers leaving money for folks who come up short. It's magical and humbling every year and I'm beginning to believe that the corner of Erdrick & Barnett Street, sits somewhere between the North Pole and "George Bailey's" Bedford Falls. We really love what we do... and it is a wonderful life! 
Merry Christmas to all!
