    I said both mandarin and clementine…but when I was a kid, only clementines were available at Christmas.

    Yeah it has to be a big juicey orange for Christmas, they are all over the ground down here now so we have plenty.

    I’ve always associated clementines with the holidays – my book club actually just had this discussion last week.

    Clementines are just a mandarin bred with an orange. I love them all, though.

    We always had the big navel oranges come in our stockings on Christmas day, so that’s what I think of as a Christmas orange.

    Clementines or naval. I associate mandarins with summertime because they’re in some summery cocktails I make.

    I guess if you’re talking about the ones that are only available this time of year, it is clementines. 

    But when I hear “Christmas Orange” I actually think of a normal sized orange because my mom always put an orange in the toe of my stocking (which I think is like a german tradition or something?)

    Clementines! Fiance insists on calling them tangerines. Bugs me.

    Clementines or big naval oranges.  I spent a lot of my Christmases growing up either in Florida or with a big bag of oranges from Florida family.

    @CorgiTales:  I was going to ask about this, because I have never heard of a Christmas orange (except the chocolate ones) until right this second.

    But then I called Darling Husband and asked him, and apparently that’s what goes in the stocking toe.

    I’m so out of the loop…

    @AB Bride:  I’m pretty sure we didn’t have clementines around here as much as now… only Mandarins were available when I was a kid.  

    I’m a sucker for blood oranges… so tasty.
