Christmas Stocking from Bucilla - Christmas Gift Ideas

A Christmas stocking is usually used as a place to put small gifts for children. Kids believe that when Santa Claus arrive he will fill their Christmas stockings with full of small toys, candy, and coins. The story of this stocking began because of legend of poor man and his three daughters. Once upon a time, a widower worried about his beautiful daughters’ life if he passed away. He is very poor so he can’t fulfill his daughters’ needs and he had no money to get his daughter married. So, when Santa Claus heard this sad condition, he wanted to help him in secret. Then one snowy night he entered the chimney with lots of gold coins. Santa Claus looked for a place to keep the coins, and then he saw the girls’ stockings were hung over the mantelpiece for drying. Thus, he decided to put the coins on each stocking. The next morning, that family surprise because of that gift. After that, they all can have a better life and get married.
