Just in case you haven’t heard it enough, Happy New Year. Consider this, there are only 355 more shopping days till Christmas.
Most of us are big fans of major holidays because they often gift us with an extra day off. As I was checking through my Appointment planner to see when the next holiday would take place, I was amused to discover that there were over a hundred days that are celebrated by someone somewhere.
For instance, how many of you know that January 3 is Fruitcake Toss Day. To think, that as I am writing this, there are people gleefully celebrating this awesome event. At the start of a new year, it’s time to bring in the new, and toss out the old. Today is the day that the fruit cake goes.
There’s no one way to toss out the old fruitcake, so have some fun with it. Gather up a few friends, who were also blessed to have received this awesome gift for the holidays. Go out to a vacant lot and see who can toss it the farthest. Be careful that no one is in the path of a flying fruitcake. It could easily put someone in the hospital, if they’re hit by it. An important Note: If you don’t toss the fruitcake this week, you must keep it until next Christmas.
However, If you find yourself with time on your hands, Bread of Life has wonderful opportunities for you to serve the less fortunate. Call and find out what you might do.
