Pistachio-Filled Apple Gift


Pistachio-Filled Apple Gift

Giving a gift-wrapped apple is a popular Chinese Christmas tradition. Some say the tradition came about because the Chinese name for Christmas Eve (”Ping An Ye," the eve of safe and sound) sounds a lot like the name  for “apple” ("Ping An Guo," the fruit of safe and sound). And so, it is common to gift apple ornaments or wrap gifts in boxes and jars shaped like apples. In China, pistachios are regarded as the happy nut. A festive apple container filled with American pistachios is a gift filled with happiness and health.
