On the face of it, putting a tangerine in a stocking is a strange thing to do. Why put something in there that’s neither novel, nor a surprise, nor particularly exciting? Dear Father Christmas - if you’re reading this, I’m grateful for my stockings. They had some great things in, but I must admit I always hoped that the toe bit would have something other than citrus fruit in it.

Iris, on the other hand, has only experienced Christmas once, and it must’ve been pretty blurry. At the tender age of 13 months, she is definitely hoping for a “tango” (see title for phonetic spelling). Words cannot express the excitement with which she devours tangos, cramming as many segments as she can into her cheek pouches, rocking back and forth and dribbling juice down her chin. Dear Father Christmas, please send Iris a tangerine this year.

Inspired by Newsbiscuit: ‘Squashed Satsuma and Some Walnuts’ is this year’s top Christmas must-have
