As a kid, I consumed Christmas stories like a fiend. A “Christmas Carol” all the way to “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”, I read them all again and again. Somewhere in one of those books, the children woke excitedly on Christmas morning and rushed to see what gifts Santa had left them. I read in disbelief as they emptied their stockings to find oranges and walnuts. Oranges and walnuts?? What the hell? Oranges grew on the tree outside our kitchen window.
