The winner of the gingerbread Viking contest is Emily Hartman!
The contest had two entries, which is twice as many as I thought there would be. Emily has given us a row of Vikings with swords, a row of Vikings with shields, a berserker bear, Grendel, and a row of Star Trek redshirts (because why not?).
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! I have another 11 months to consider whether this contest should happen again next year. For those of you who are academics, enjoy the rest of the winter break, and I’ll see you next year.
