Los Hombres del Gingerbread

Gingerbread dates back to the 15th century, and figural biscuit-making was first practiced in the 16th century. The first documented instance of figure-shaped gingerbread biscuits appeared in the court of Elizabeth I of England. She had the gingerbread figures made in the likeness of some of her important guests.

Whereas, the word "sombrero" derives from the Spanish word sombra, meaning "shade" or "shadow"; thus a literal English translation would be "shade maker". Many early Texan cowboys adopted the Spanish sombrero with its flat crown, and a wide flat brim. Also called the Poblano, these hats came from Spain.
