Citrus for the Christmas Holidays

Do you remember getting an orange in your stocking at Christmas as a kid? It was almost always followed with a story about appreciating the humble luxuries, and during the Great Depression, our great grandparents looked at the gift of an orange as if it was actual gold! In modern times, when obtaining an orange, year-round, is as easy as making a quick trip to the grocery store, we may forget that fresh citrus was once a distinctly wintry treat.




In the days before artificial lighting, of short days and cold nights, those colorful, sweet-smelling citrus fruits must’ve seemed like little balls of sunshine. So it’s no surprise, really, that there’s a close association between citrus and Xmas decor, particularly of the more traditional kind.
