Day 12 of the calendar has a bowl of satsumas and pineapple (bottom right) which they say have become traditional Christmas fayre. I agree with the satsumas, we always had one in the bottom of our stockings when we were growing up, not that we were ever very impressed by them! But I have to admit I didn’t know pineapples were considered Christmassy. The calendar tells me this is because they are symbols of hospitality. This is what I found in my fruit bowl.
