Williamsburg, Va. - It’s the gift that keeps on giving. You probably will not be able to tell by how it looks, but a local family has a loaf of fruit cake that’s three decades old.

And its still in its original 1980’s plastic wrapping, with the orange discount sticker in place.

The colorful loaf started off as a kooky gift and has been passed back and forth between two Williamsburg couples every Christmas for the last 30 years.

Over time the gifting has become more and more creative.
