A new mysterious monolith appeared in San Francisco on Christmas — and it was completely made of gingerbread.

What happened?

KABC reports that a gingerbread monolith appeared at Corona Heights Park on Christmas. It had icing and gumdrops on it, too.

  • However, the gingerbread monolith was taken down by Saturday morning.
  • “And just like the others, it is unclear how it got there or what caused the cookie to crumble,” according to KABC6.

Bigger picture:

The new gingerbread monolith is the latest mysterious object to appear in recent weeks. The trend of monoliths appearing around the world began when the Utah monolith appeared in a remote wilderness area. Soon after, other monoliths appeared in California, Romania and several places around the world. Celebrities and brands also weighed in on the viral moment.

  • “It definitely has gone viral and is getting international and national attention,” said BLM spokeswoman Kimberly Finch, according to the Deseret News. “Although we can’t comment on active investigations, the Bureau of Land Management would like to remind public land visitors that using, occupying or developing the public lands or their resources without a required authorization is illegal, no matter what planet you are from,” the agency said in a statement.
