Growing up in the 40s and 50s, a tradition was started with the Christmas stockings. My sisters and I could depend on4 things in them,,,a very large orange,,,a very large apple,,,a coconut, shell and all,,,,and ribbon candy. When I say large, I mean the fruits were the size of softballs! Small toys, socks, handkerchiefs and other small things would be under the candy. It was obvious to anyone, except children who really relieved in Santa, that they came from my dad's store. He never had the large oranges and apples except at Christmastime. The same with the coconuts. I guess he knew his customers would want fresh coconut for their special baking. Us kids? Well we thought Santa dropped by Dad's store to get them. He would let himself in(he has keys to everything, ya know), and get whatever he needed.
