Fruitcake Does Exist

Dear Editor,

I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say that there is no such
thing as fruitcake. Papa says, "If you see it in print, it is so."
Please tell me the truth, is fruit cake real?

Signed, Virginia

Virginia, your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the
skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe, except they see...

Yes, Virginia, there is fruitcake! It exists as certainly as love and
generosity and devotion exist, except there are only 100 of them in the
world. The fruitcakes get re-wrapped every year and shuffled around from
store to store.

Not believe in fruitcake?! You might as well not believe in gingerbread
men, sugar cookies or chocolate chips!

Just because you can't see it or hold it or your family doesn't have
one, doesn't mean that fruitcake doesn't exist!

No fruitcake! A thousand years from now, Virginia, nay, 10 times 10,000
years from now, fruitcake - the same 100 fruitcakes - will continue to
make glad the heart of childhood.
