Why Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice is a Wolf Family Christmas Tradition

By: The Office of Governor Tom Wolf

December 18, 2016

This holiday season, we wanted to find out a few of Governor and First Lady Wolf’s favorite holiday traditions, so we asked each of them fill out a quick survey. We were surprised to find that both the Governor and First Lady chose “Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice” as their favorite holiday drink rather than eggnog or hot chocolate, so we asked them to explain themselves.

“Every Christmas morning since our girls were little, we would watch them open their gifts from Santa and then we would whip up a huge holiday breakfast of scrambled eggs, fresh cut fruit, biscuits, and of course, freshly squeezed orange juice,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “We love relaxing around the Christmas tree while spending some quality time with each other.”
