Love it or heave it? Annual Fruitcake Toss Day observed

Posted: Updated:

National Fruitcake Toss Day is annually observed Jan. 3 (occasionally listed as the first Saturday in December).

The first Great Fruitcake Toss was held in Manitou Springs, Colorado on January 3, 1996.

Each year the entrants compete to see who can hurl or toss their fruitcakes the farthest.

Many people receive fruitcakes as gifts sometime during the holiday season.

Some people eat the holiday bread. Others may re-gift them. There are those who sneakily throw them away and others who will do so openly. 

But on the third day of January, another type of fruitcake, ahem, person, comes out of the woodwork. 

These are the characters who have hoarded them, stored them and hid them so they can celebrate National Fruitcake Toss Day.
