Holidailies -- Day 10

Today's prompt: Tell us about a holiday food tradition you just can't stand.

When I was a kid, Johnny Carson said this every year from behind The Tonight Show desk, "The worst gift is fruitcake. There is only one fruitcake in the entire world, and people keep sending it to each other." I also don't like its appearance. It looks fusty and the fruits seem to take on a strange color. And then there's the idea of consuming citrus peel. 
No, I don't care for it. Not at all.


  1. me either...really stand up if you like it...we want to throw you one.
    ha ha!!

  2. My grandmother had an awesome recipe for fruitcake. I'm a fruitcake snob.

  3. And I haven't tasted a fruit cake that I DIDN'T like....

  4. Oh, I'm solidly in the anti-fruitcake camp. Nuclear-green fruit? I think not!

    But I do like maraschino cherries....

    Yeah, it's pretty gross if you think about it. How about Figgy Pudding? Just the name is gross and I'm not even sure what it is.

    Personally though, I hate all things mint and this is a holiday almost dedicated to freaking candy canes. It makes me want to barf.


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
