Did you know, back in the day in New York; an ORANGE was a traditional Christmas gift?
Groceries haven’t always been stocked with delicious fruits and veggies as they are now. Oranges were grown in Florida, so it was a really big deal to get one if you lived out of state.
I think we forget how blessed we are to have constant access to nutritious natural foods. That being said, mom if you’re reading this- you better not put an orange in my stocking this Christmas!
however, you can bet I’ll be thanking God for every blessed bite into a juicy piece of fruit.
P.s On a side note- only 5 months till Christmas!!! (I’m a Christmas fanatic)
