    Yes, this photo looks delicious. Our family has made a version of this
    for about 25 or 30 years, except we add nuts and raisins and cover
    it w/ cream cheese icing. scrump-deli-icious!

    If people are offended by you calling it a Christmas cake then we should remove personal names from all things that have someone’s name in it: Hopping “John”…”Johnny” cakes…”Napoleans”….I think it is crazy…fact is, the word “Holiday” comes from two words: HOLY DAY…if we aren’t celebrating Christ’s birth, it’s nothing…not a holiday or Holy Day…The nit-picking makes me sad because there are far more important things in our lives to be fussing over.

      I agree with you, Virginia, every year around this time I get people jumping on me for calling something “Christmas cookies”, etc….my daughter has a “Christmas dance program” in December and, well, I’ll probably just keep calling it that with no disrespect intended for anyone else.
