Did you ever wonder how the tradition of filling stockings for Christmas began ?
Throughout the years, it has come to be a Christmas tradition to hang stockings on the chimney mantle or some other means so that on Christmas Day, the stocking will be filled with all sorts of small goodies, typically ranging from candy to jewelry to small model cars.
And, depending on what society your live in, the history of the Christmas stocking varies ever so slightly.
Many and most of the stories as to the origin of the Christmas stocking tradition is based on the good deeds of Saint Nicholas, but one story sticks to mind.
Basically, as the story is told a poor man did not have enough to offer as dowry for prospective husbands for his three daughters, which meant that without the dowry, they were highly unlikely to marry.
Well, one night after washing their clothes, they hung their stockings on the mantle to dry, and that night Saint Nicholas stopped by to see the stockings hanging after everyone had gone to bed, and he took three small bags of gold from his pouch and threw them- one by one- into each stocking.
The next morning the daughters woke to find that their stockings contained enough gold for their dowry.
And, this led to the tradition of leaving stockings on the mantle, or putting shoes at the door for Saint Nicholas to fill with goodies.
