The Swedish Christmas orange tradition is a special custom where families give each other oranges as a symbol of goodwill and appreciation during the holiday season. Oranges were originally a rare and exotic fruit in Sweden, and giving an orange as a gift was a way to show generosity and kindness. Today, many families continue this tradition by hanging an orange stuffed with cloves from the window which leaves the home smelling fragrant and festive. The tradition has become a cherished part of Swedish Christmas celebrations, and it reminds us of the importance of kindness, generosity, and gratitude during the holiday season.
