Re: What do you put in stockings?
I think it comes from a time when fresh fruit just wasn't available during winter months easily at all. Oranges were a little luxury that could be brought up from the south.

Now my kids get fresh fruit daily and wouldn't appreciate an orange as being something special.
Their stockings usually have consumables:
1 chocolate orange
1 tooth brush
1 tube toothpaste
some sort of bath consumable (pouf, sponge, oil, fizzies, bubble)
some sort of art consumable (markers, crayons, glitter glue, notepad)
