Oh No Not Another Fruitcake!!

As the temperature drops and bargain crazed shoppers over run the local shops, you can bet that ovens everywhere are being warmed in preparation for all our favorite holiday treats.


Fruitcake is not on the list. As welcome as the measles, every year someone will give me a fruitcake that undoubtebly will end up in the trash. I don't like the fact that some people still don't get it. There is not an older joke in the book than horrible fruitcakes at Christmas, yet they keep on coming.

What is the deal? Wouldn't you rather get a tie, or fudge, or smacked in the head with the "decorative tin" it came in? Better yet hit yourself with the fruitcake and eat the tin, it has to taste better.
