clementines are greater than gold

December clementine

We had a feeling citrus would be playing a big part in our near future back in December. We were trying to settle on a design for our annual Christmas card and we ended up going with a photograph featuring a clementine orange. Clementines come like a godsend here in Montreal in December, when suddenly our local grocery stores are flooded with crates of the Moroccan variety—they’re one of the things that help us make it through Quebec’s winters—but we were also inspired by the fact that oranges used to be among the most cherished of Christmas gifts in Eastern Europe not so long ago.
