How are you doing on your holiday shopping? While some go-getters may already be done, and others havent even started, many of us still have at least a few people on our lists to shop for. Stocking stuffers are some of the most fun gifts to get and can be as simple as an orange or as unexpected as a sweet piece of jewelry. While nobody is entirely sure how the tradition of hanging stockings up on the mantel for Santa began, here is the legend that we heard: A long, long time ago, a very poor father had three beautiful daughters. He was worried that he would not have enough money to ensure that they would could be married, and feared for their futures. St. Nicholas happened to be passing through the village and got wind of the old man’s woes. He waited until night and then tossed gold coins through the man’s window, filling up the socks that the man and his daughters had hung by the fire to dry. They were surprised and overjoyed in the morning to find their stocking filled with gold, and they girls were able to get married and lived happily ever after. While we may never know exactly how the tradition came about, we love it! Aside from having to be small enough to fit in the stocking, there are no rules to stocking gift etiquette. Some families have traditions, like toys, candy or toothbrushes. We hope nobody ever gets coal in theirs!
