Did your mom put an orange in the bottom of your stocking to fill out the foot?

Posted by   + Show Post

Seems like this was a fairly common tradition. Mine did.

Do you do it for your kiddos?

We always got some piece of fruit in our stocking.  The years that we got a pear were my favorite :D

There was never an explanation - I didn't think it was to fill out the foot! I just thought they were trying to balance out all the chocolate with a healthier snack lolol.

 the region of Germany where my Dad was born changed 'hands' when he was a very small  boy, and is now Polish, so, maybe they do share the tradition

Quoting mem82:

My mom's family is Polish. I wonder if it's a shared tradition?

Quoting artistmom889:

 fruit is part of the German tradition. My dad's side of the family is German so yeah, an orange was always part of it.... can't recall if it was always in the toe thouugh.
