Again, what holiday. Don't be afraid to say the holiday you refer to.

Not so bad? Where's the option to vote, I love it!? I adore fruit cake and certainly prefer a moist fruit cake to 99% of people over-baked, hard, crumbly holiday cookies. Moist over dry any day!

Only if it's homemade and does not contain citrus peel.

I happen to like fruitcake, and couldn't care less about the "we hate fruitcake" mob.

Nobody's really giving it so no problem. Would avoid it on a buffet.

I regift to my husband who loves it as long as it isn't made by my mother.

I learned my lesson the hard way. I no longer have ANY carry-over credit balances. Zero debt.

I got rid of all our credit cards years ago. The interest is ridiculous! You end up paying a lot more in interest than the the cost of the items purchased!

Why buy more than I can pay for? The federal government does that, which causes inflation.

My credit card pays me, in the form of points. I do not want to pay my credit card company.

I am a worry-wart and a negativr person, so half-empty would be the answer. But, what people don't see is that I am a pragmatist, or a realist. So, it's is also not half full or half empty, but right down the middle.
