SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) – A mysterious monolith appeared on Christmas morning in San Francisco … and it’s made of gingerbread?
One Franciscan tossed aside COVID security and germaphobia and said he saw another lick the monolith and confirmed that it was indeed the Christmas cookie held together with icing.

It towers over the city from Corona Heights Park.
Gummy bears line the sides of the vertical gingerbread structure. But we ask you not to take a bite.

The Cookie Tower is modeled after mysterious metal monoliths that have surfaced around the world: first in Utah, then across the sea in Romania (pictured below) and even in Southern California.

The origin of the gingerbread monolith is unclear. We don’t know why it is there or what the Creator wants from us. Maybe it’s just enough silliness to spread the joy of Christmas.
We put our gingerbread on a plate.
