An original crate label of mine, and very worn out.  At least it has some playing cards that show a full house.

Quote
The public was admonished to “Drink an Orange”marking the first promotion of orange juice. As a result, the orange, no longer a luxury item, became a staple of the American diet. Lithographed labels affixed at the ends of the wooden packing crates enhanced marketing of the product worldwide.

As kids we always got an orange 🍊 in our stocking.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

You must have been good, Dot.  Otherwise you would have received a piece of coal or a tin devil, right?  Speaking of those tin devils, I always kind of wanted one as a kid.

I was just going to ask....

When I was a kid, I read somewhere that there was a long ago tradition of leaving oranges in the Christmas stockings of those kids who had been good all year, and consequently, lumps of coal and/or a tin devil in the stockings belonging to bad little kids.  I think that Saint Nicholas put the fruit in the stockings, while a devil like being named Krampus was responsible for giving the bad kids a piece of coal and/or a tin representation of himself.  This was way back in time, were talking 4th-century, here.  I don't remember where I read about this old custom.  I tried to look it up but all I could find was that coal was given to the bad kids.  No mention of the tin devils.
