I'd say this calls for some celebratory fruitcak. Anybody like a piece?
Last month there was a story in our local newspaper about a fruitcake that's been passed around among the members of a local family since *the late 1940s*! No one bothers to refrigerate The Fruitcake while they have custody it, and because we have hot summers around here, by now the cake is about a quarter of its original size and smells musty and slightly spicy, sort of like old sweatsocks sprinkled with nutmeg.
It's traditions like this that make the holidays so special...
