The city of Manitou Springs, Colorado has an annual fruitcake toss in January. Each year thousands of people enter the event to food for the charity while treating fruitcake with the respect it deserves. Thankfully, the food that is collected is not the fruitcakes, because that would be cruel.

Events include the fruitcake toss, the fruitcake launch, pneumatic gun or canon, catch the fruitcake,”  and accuracy with targets.

The next Fruitcake Toss is Saturday, January 9, 2010. Read more about this event on their website: http://www.manitousprings.org

I hope they have the decency to recycle them all when they’re finished.
