Christmas Stockings are one of the sweetest decorations at Christmas time. Why? Because, no matter what your holiday style is, there is something unique about each Christmas stocking. They might be monogrammed with each person’s name or maybe you let each individual select their own style of stocking. No matter the look, each one has a special place in someone’s heart.
Christmas stockings have traditionally been hung on the mantle with care, but not everyone has a fireplace. People have come up with some really creative ways and places to hang their Christmas stockings. Not to mention, stockings are no longer daddy’s sock. They have different shapes and sizes.
When do you hang your Christmas stockings? Do they get hung as soon as your home is decorated or do you wait until Christmas Eve? Do you wrap what you fill the stockings with or is the stocking hiding all of the goodies inside? Is there any other Christmas decoration that can be so individualized?
