Today is Fruitcake Toss Day! Fruitcakes are the holiday gift
that no one asks for, but many people receive. If you still haven’t
eaten or re-gifted your holiday fruitcake, today is the perfect excuse
to toss it. Start the year with a clean pantry!
Every year in Manitou Springs, Colorado, there is a Great Fruitcake
Toss in which people compete to see how far they can throw or hurtle
their fruitcakes. People also use the cakes at this event to make little
cars to race during a Fruitcake Derby.
The first Great Fruitcake Toss took place in 1995. The event has
grown into a huge festival that attracts participants from across the
country. So go ahead and join the rest of the nation today in throwing
out your holiday fruitcakes!
