Now, what has me most perplexed Michelle, is how a person with the Latin/Native American(?) last name of "Naranjo," and a person with the Swiss/German last name of "Brenneman," could have a common Christmas tradition of an orange in the bottom of their Christmas stockings? It was ALWAYS there, and you were disappointed to reach the bottom of the stocking, but if it hadn't been there, you would have been disappointed, too. To remind me of the days when I used to pick 7 bushels myself, I order a bushel of real Satsumas from south Louisiana, during the holidays. Merry Christmas!

The smell of oranges always means Christmas to me, too because when on the last day before Christmas in elementary school (an eon ago), we all received small brown paper bags containing peanuts in the shell, a peppermint stick, and an orange. The information about clementines is very welcome and quite interesting, as is the origin of the name.
