Brother Christopher Harmon ships fruitcakes from the Holy Cross Abbey in Berryville, Va. on Monday, Nov. 19, 2012. The monks have been making fruitcakes for nearly 40 years and sell 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. True to the nature of their order, they do as much by hand as possible. (Barbara L.
