Growing up my family had handmade stockings that my mother made the year my brother was born. I've since inherited them and she's purchased new, more traditional versions. We're curious, what hangs by the chimney with care in your home?
My cousins always had giant stockings that touched the hearth and I was jealous as a child knowing how many things could fit inside. My husband's family doesn't really do stockings, but instead has piles of things waiting on top of their Christmas morning packages instead.
Does your family have a stocking tradition?
