As you continue to hunt for the perfect gift to place beneath the tree, don’t forget about the beloved tradition of hangin’ some stockins’ above the fire on Christmas Eve! We’ve heard that Santa doesn’t discriminate against boots either so if you’d like to just use your old-reliables, he’ll happily oblige.
Some believe that stockings were the only source of Christmas gifts in the early years of Saint Nicholas. There are a variety of renditions but the basic gist is that Saint Nick threw some money through the windows of those living in poorer neighborhoods and some of it landed in stockings that were drying by the fireplace. Since then, children have been gathering their socks and shoes and placing them near or on the mantle in hopes of getting some goodies from Santa.
Depending on the size of the boot..er.. stocking, you have to get creative to fit some small but thoughtful goodies inside. For some, the stocking is the place of practical gifts like toothbrushes and q-tips, while others use the stocking as a chance to give gag gifts and funny gadgets. However you choose to fill your loved ones stockings this year, you don’t want to leave out some essential goodies to remind them of their favorite place on Earth!
