I think some places call them clementines. They are little oranges that are really easy to peel.

I can't wait for the truffles. We have these chocolate truffles we get a Christmas...they are amazing!

btw, kudos to the SNL references

Those are way sweeter, and a brighter orange, but they are similar to Christmas oranges.

I consider them to be the same thing... They are both a type of Manadrin oranges... just the best time to get them is Christmas!

They are awesome, unfortunately, although they are available in Calgary now, none of them are truely ripe, or conversely are over-ripe... #-o :-?

The only time to get good Christmas oranges in Calgary is truely in December... And then me and Joe will go through 2-3 boxes on our own! But it's oranges, so it's okay! ;)

Who hasn't!? Heck, I have their version of "Carol of the Bells" on my christmas CD!

I love the christmas shows... I try to make time to see Garfield's Christmas, Ruldolph the red-nosed reindeer.... I wish I could find the one with the mouse that told the "history" of the song Silent Night. They showed it one year, and I haven't been able to find it since... :cry:

Oh, and if anyone knows of the name for two Christmas shows in particular I would be grateful!

There was one that had Santa being raised by fairies, and it had the Horned Lord in it. Then there was one that focused on a young lad who got trapped on an island with a witch that could take any shape, but could never stop crying. I only know that it was a christmas story because I remeber it ended with him defeating the witch and going home to his true love and they danced to the song Christmas in Killarney.

Yeah I know, I can't let go of my love for the season... Although I'm noting that all my favourites even as a child had very little to do with religion... Much more to do with animals and nature and family! Hmmm, maybe it was a clue that perhaps I wasn't really into "my" religion! :lol: ;)

I used to love the Rudolph claymation show... It scared my sister, so that is probably why ;)

Speaking of shows you can't remember the names of... There was this one show I watched as a young kid. This family was hiding in war times within an underground bunker. The main character goes out to pick flowers/find food or something similar. The scene cuts to her family being brutally captured, and she comes back to an empty and torn apart bunker.

And another with a fox...

Both were animated. The first struck me deeply.

Kitsune, I think I found the names to the movies.

Faerie one: The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus based on the story by L. Frank Baum

I can't find the witch one :( Anything else you can tell about it?

No... No more information on it... :cry:

The last time I saw them show it was when I was 9 or 10... Nearly 20 years ago.

However, I do remember it was very Irish (as perhaps only a christmas show with the song "Christmas in Killarney" could be! :lol: ).

Hey, I bet it's one of their old myths. The crying witch is probally a fey of some sort, and it became a holiday myth after they were Christianized. So I'll do a search on crying fey in Irish and Celtic myth, and perhaps I'll find it then! :-D

Any thing ornge sold at Jule in the U.K is called a tangerine.

Whether they are or not.

HAY, We are talking Britain here.... Where if it once swam and is sold in a Fish and chip shop, it is cod.

No matter if it is rock salmon, haddock, or bloody squid. :roll: :lol:
