Did You Know January 3 is Toss the Fruitcake Day? January 3 Toss the Fruitcake Day image

by Silicon Valley REALTOR Michelle Carr Crowe

Yes! You finally have permission on this one day of the year to toss that fruitcake! Now some folks actually enjoy fruitcake. They should just skip this post.

This tradition reportedly started in 1995 with the first Fruitcake Toss in Manitou Springs Colorado. A few friends gathered together with their fruitcakes out in a field and made a competition out of tossing their respective fruitcakes.

One warning-never toss a fruitcake at someone. It's massive density could injure anyone hit such a formidable projectile.

Good afternoon Michelle,

I also like fruit cake and especially the homemade one my sister dropped off yesterday.

Make yourself an astonishing day.

I love this one. Lol. I am not a fruit cake fan, but rarely have to toss it. Most folks know how I feel about that creepy fruity doorstop disguised as a cake. ;)
