Brother Christopher Harmon goes through the list of shipments that need to be made from the Holy Cross Abbey in Berryville, Va. on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012. The monks have been making fruitcakes for nearly 40 years and sells them as a means of making money for the day-to-day operations of the monastery. They bake from January to September, with Christmas being their busiest shipping time of year. They also sell creamed honey and truffles. (Barbara L. Salisbury/The Washington Times)
