December 27th National Fruitcake Day

Boy, doesn’t that look yummy! It is chocked full of everything you can imagine and dripping with sugar… and if done right, dripping with whiskey as well! Fruitcake is something handed down from family to family, in some cases the same fruitcake year after year. I knew a man who kept the same old fruitcake alive for nearly ten years handing it down to family members after adding a little more whiskey to it. He would always end up with it again the next year. Eventually the bread part of it began to mold and he had to throw it away. I don’t really know anyone who likes fruitcake, I mean… it’s not bad but one slice is enough for an entire year. It is commonly given as a gift to someone you have no idea what else to give. That way, they can give it to someone who has no idea what someone else would like either!

How to celebrate – Give a fruitcake to someone this year. Try a slice of fruitcake this year. Make a celebration out of burying your fruitcake in the back yard.
