Twas three days before Christmas and I
Stockings are an integral part of Christ-
mas. Where to hang them, how to hang
them, names on them, themes etc.
I found this article with interesting info
in the December '18 issue of Better
Homes and Gardens.
Title of the article:
Throwback 1930 Stockings
The ritual of hanging stockings began
with the tale of St Nick sliding gold coins
down the chimney and into the stockings
of those in need.
In the 1930 issue, regular stockings
were hung on a mantle for the photo-
shoot on stockings but flashy ones were
on the horizon.
Flash forward to today. Stockings come
in many forms on a higher standard than
your everyday stocking.
Where do you hang your stockings?
Are they the same every year?
Do you use themes?
Do you hang stockings for just immediate
family or everyone in your family.
We hang ours from drawer knobs on a side
table in our living room
They are the same (mostly) from year to
Themes not so much.
We just hang stockings for us.
I hope that your stockings are hung by your
chimney with care.
~Keep on Dreaming~
