Free Orange For Christmas Stockings At Morrisons

Morrisons* are doing their bit to revive the tradition of giving an orange at Christmas by giving them out free to children in store tomorrow!

On Sunday 22nd December, 200,000 oranges wrapped in Christmas tissue paper will be given to parents at Morrisons* stores, along with a story-card telling the history of the tradition so that parents can read it to their children.

Apparently the tradition can be traced back to a story about Father Christmas dropping three gold coins down a poor family’s chimney for them to find in the morning, but instead they landed in the children’s socks which were hanging by the fire to dry. The tradition says that to remind us Father Christmas now leaves a golden orange instead.

I certainly remember getting an orange or satsuma in my stocking when I was little, but it's something that I haven't done with my children at all, so I'm tempted to revive it for them this year along with telling them the story.

    None in my store today and there were none of the magic reindeer carrots that were supposedly there on offer yesterday either.

    Sha-nice idea but not sure it is a scam to get us in to Morrisons tbh.
