Christmas Stockings For The Whole Family
Hanging or displaying Christmas stockings is a very simple but meaningful tradition. The use of an old favorite sock began long ago and the socks were placed above the fireplace mantel with tender care. On Christmas Eve, these stockings were filled by Santa Claus with fruit, nuts, candy, and small gifts which were used as stocking stuffers or fillers. A favorite legend associated with stockings and their fillings is associated with the item that a misbehaving child should expect to receive in his or her Christmas stocking. Misbehaving children could expect to receive a hard, black lump of coal in their Christmas stocking!
The fabrics used to make Christmas stockings range from felt to a traditional knitted sock. Some of your favorite Christmas stockings may contain needle point pictures which depict a favorite Christmas theme, animal, or tradition.
