TODAY IS FRUITCAKE DAY
A day to celebrate every nutty person you know. Wait! That’s not right. It’s a day for lovers of fruitcake to rejoice in the delights of the world’s most misunderstood fruit.
A fruitcake is a boozy, chewy, rich amalgam of dried fruit, nuts, and sugar, saturated with your favorite alcohol, most commonly brandy or bourbon. That produces a dense, sweet, and textured treat generally served around the holidays. Fruitcakes have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs, so you know that the tradition is steeped in history as well as booze.
HOW TO OBSERVE
Share a fruitcake story or recipe. Or maybe share both. Invite someone to enjoy some fruitcake with you.
