National Fruitcake Toss Day - First Saturday in January (1)

NATIONAL FRUITCAKE TOSS DAY

National Fruitcake Toss Day is celebrated annually on January 3 (occasionally listed as the first Saturday in December) . Many people receive fruitcakes as gifts sometime during the holiday season. Some people eat the fruitcakes, some re-gift them, some throw them away while other save them for January 3rd so they can celebrate National Fruitcake Toss Day.
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.
