: Does anyone know the original meaning to "Fall under your umbrella" as in "That should fall under your umbrella."
Umbrella in this sense means jurisdiction or responsibility. For example in a supermarket the purveyance of vegetables might fall under the umbrella of the produce manager.
www.m-w.com gives the following definition for this sense: "4 : something which covers or embraces a broad range of elements or factors "
