There are a number of reasons. A major reason is ignorance, whereyou don't know something and you act in fear towards what you don'tunderstand. It could be due to religious differences. Some people hate Jewishpeople or those of some other faith, but there is no need to.People can help you to learn …a new language or some other thing youdon't know. Race is another reason that folks hate one another. They may bebrainwashed to believe that one race is better than another racewhen in actuality we share a lot of the same anatomy and are of thesame species. Who cares if you're white, Asian or African-American.It's just another stupid reason to hate each other. It doesn't makeyou bad if you disagree, but we are all the same to a degree! "Weare the world, we are the children!" Newborn babies are born notknowing of racial issues, so they love and smile with all who theyencounter, being trusting with each person. Loosely related to race is nationality and skin color. Perhaps someone stole something from on another... or they couldjust not like the others' personalities. People can hate othersbecause they've done something to insult/upset them, or " ruintheir life ". Sometimes people don't like others because they'rejealous or the person is flirting with their crush. People might hate others for no reason. This is mean to do so,because if you bully someone for no reason it's unnecessary. Mostbullies hurt others because of home problems or a bad past becausethey're afraid they'll be bullied. Don't be thebully. (MORE)

Other than gifting a fruitcake, people do absolutely nothing with it. The truth is, there is actually only one fruitcake. It is just passed from person to person during the holidays. The fruitcake lasts so long because it is of an ancient origin dated back to the Mayan Pre-classic time period of 200…0 B.C. to 250 A.D. They Mayans worshiped the fruitcake as one of their gods until that tragic day when Ixtab(a believed goddess) ate a tiny morsel of the fruitcake. After that, the entire Mayan society disappeared. And the answer is that nobody in their right mind would ever eat fruitcake. If you did happen to eat the fruitcake, you will be known as an embarrassment to the human society. So, I beg of you, innocent pastry lover, never EVER eat the fruitcake. (MORE)
