With homemade orange jam with ginger.Coz it’s healthy and sooooo delicious. Everyone is asking for the recipe after trying it:)

----- Greta 06.12.12 02:22

My dad always put an orange in our stockings, even now, and then hit the f*** out of them somewhere in the house, like under the insulation in the attic. I think he figured it would keep us busy all morning looking. Two things you should know 1. He always put something we really wanted in there as well. And 2. If we didn’t find it, tough titties, that orange was gonna get moldy and make the other presents not so nice.
I will be putting oranges in stockings, they just taste so good.

----- Cody 06.12.12 02:06

This year I’m stuffing a stocking (a Christmas celebration for two, myself included) with everything a student needs but don’t yet know they need: computer cleaning gum for the long-suffering laptop; an assortment of chocolates including chocolate-covered coffee beans for that cheeky caffeine rush; the tiniest 51-piece tool kit known to Clas Ohlson; a small collection of little bottles of men’s perfume; a mini Moleskine to help him pretend that he pays attention during lectures; an R2D2 Lego keyring, and finally, a travel bottle of Tabasco as we’re both hotheads.
