Family Memories :
Do you have a family custom about stockings? I remember as a child Mom buying a fake (cardboard) Fireplace so we could have a mantle for our homemade stockings. Even when I married – we never lived in a house with a fireplace so we made do with book shelves or walls to hang our stockings.
Here’s a few Stocking facts”
A Christmas stocking is typically a sock or sock shaped bag.
Christmas stockings are traditionally hung on Christmas Eve, ready to be filled secretly with presents during the night, which are usually opened the next morning.
Santa is said to put gifts in Christmas stockings, for good boys and girls.
There is no written history of the Christmas stocking, although there are many legends of how the stockings came about.
