This weekend we’re continuing the theme of reviving Christmas traditions, so as well as Carrots for Rudolph, our stores will be handing out Oranges for Stockings to our younger customers. On Sunday, as well as an orange, children will receive a card that tells the story behind this lovely Christmas tradition.

The legend behind the tradition

It’s widely believed the tradition goes back hundreds of years, when a man named St. Nicholas came to inherit a large sum of money. Nicholas, who devoted his life to helping others, learned of a poor man who wasn’t able to find suitors for his three daughters, because he didn’t have any money for a dowry.

St. Nicholas traveled to the man’s house, and threw three sacks of gold down the chimney for each of the dowries. The gold landed in each of the girls’ stockings, which were hanging by the fire to dry, and as a symbol of this gold, we leave oranges in stockings today.

That's really nice I can remember getting a orange in my stocking as a child with some nuts and small change
But Santa's not a legend, he's REAL!!!
That’s lovely x
Hope this helps keep the tradition alive
I do like Morrisons, earlier this year our local one donated a load of new books to my eldest's primary school.

The school brought a couple of the managers in to assembly so all the kids and staff could say thank you.

I really like this idea, brings back good memories
I always put an orange, a very highly polished apple and a handful of walnuts in my boy's stockings, but Morrisons are just giving children proof that Father Christmas isn't real.
WOW This is an excellent idea, I use to love getting a orange at Christmas time
Nice idea. Even better if your kid's called Morrisons!
🎅💕
Ah I love this. The card is a lovely touch to teach younger generations about the orange

You can buy coal marshmallows in Asda though
Good deal and voted Hot but it should go back even further to the real reason of Christmas which was the birth of Christ and not the commercial business that it has been turned into today.
How wonderful and lovely. They definitely aren't doing this to get you in the store to buy things

Yawn
Huge credit to Morrison’s for helping people learn the true story rather than a commercialistic lie. I would love for people to celebrate the goodness of St Nicholas on his feast day through the giving of simple gifts or preferably by doing something to help others less well off rather than the current Coke-Cola fake that just hijacks what should becelebrated at Christmas.
Nothing like having your stockings bulging with tasty fruit and some nuts to nibble on. Santa only comes once a year to unload his sack and when he unloads he can surely fill your stockings! Yo ho ho!
Lovely gesture

on New Years Eve !
39433877-hTj3j.jpgKids don't want no lousy oranges, they want fine Apples, in particular the iPhone 11 Pro! Only Krampus can put things right!
My children are only interested in Apples unf
thanks
We got one in our stockings as a kid, with quality street sweets and maybe some hair bobbles or bath stuff!

I never knew why, never heard the tradition so never followed it with my children!

Think I might take my youngest on Sunday and start doing it for her this year!
(My other 2 are too old!)
Thanks for sharing!
