For those of you who are still holding on to that fruitcake from National Fruitcake Day (12/27/12), you are now officially permitted to toss it according to obscure holiday etiquette. Just watch out where you chuck that thing, they have been known to do some damage.
Pat and I have all sorts of outdoor critters that visit our yard – deer, foxes, squirrels, chipmunks’, raccoons, and opossum’s, a very wide variety of birds and stray cats and dogs from time to time. We feed them – daily. In addition to bird feed, peanuts, old bread in the morning – other treats such as other nuts, fruit, cookie, corn on the cob, etc find their way into the backyard. For heavy items such as fruitcakes and the like, we have learned to cut them up into smaller and easier to handle chunks.
So regardless of what you want to toss today – be careful and enjoy!
