Fruitcake: Love It or Hate It?

In recent years, fruitcake has become one of the most hated holiday traditions. The bread-like cakes, which date back to the seventh century, are packed with candied citrus, nuts, currants, etc. and kept moist with brandy. In 19th-century England, a family's fruitcake recipe was a treasured heirloom. Today the fruitcake, with its fake fruit and neon-colored candy, is ridiculed and all but banished from the holiday table. Still, I'm wondering, is there anyone out there who enjoys fruitcake?
