Where did you hang it? On the short "pony wall" by our dining room.
What did you get in it? Mom usually bought each of us a store-bought net stocking each year. The stocking always had hard candy.
Do you have any Christmas stockings used by your ancestors? No.

When our daughters were born, I purchased some fuzzy stockings to hang by our fireplace. As I got more into quilting, I made stocking for the girls and they got various ones from relatives. But I still have the original ones I made them (somewhere). The girls always enjoyed opening the small presents I'd wrap up for them and hid in the toe of their stockings.

Of course there was always the plastic candy cane filled with M&Ms. Each year I still look at those candy canes in the store, although I no longer buy them, they still take me back to when my girls were little.
Oh, that M&M-filled candy cane was a staple of my daughters' Christmas stockings when they were little; it has now been replaced by chocolate oranges.ReplyDelete
