Another Lost Tradition


  So I am not crazy...On the HOTLINE the other day I was reminiscing about taking an orange and piercing it with cloves....Nobody knew what I was talking about....But it's actually called a Pomander Ball. 
     I must be old.

Jeff, if you're old, then so am I! My family carried out this tradition at Christmas when I was a child, and we continue to do so today. It creates a great aroma for the holiday season.

My wife does it, a tradition around thanksgiving with our daughters.

I remember if you didn't get an orange in your stocking, you must have been bad.
