Today's Reason to Celebrate

January 03, 2021 was

Fruitcake Toss Day

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!

The first Great Fruitcake Toss took place in 1995, and was held in Manitou Springs, Colorado. This event judged how far participants could throw or hurtle their fruitcakes. People also used the cakes at this event to make little cars to race during a Fruitcake Derby!

So go ahead and join the rest of the nation today in throwing out your holiday fruitcakes. Better yet, hold your own fruitcake toss with friends!
