Add a Personal Touch to an Enduring Christmas Tradition With a Customized Christmas Stocking
A stocking is an empty sock or sock-shaped bag that children hang on Christmas Eve for Saint Nicholas or Santa Claus to fill with small gifts like candies, fruits, coins, and toys. In Western culture, tradition warns that a child who behaves poorly will receive only coal in their stocking.

The stocking is a Christmas tradition that dates back centuries to the story of Saint Nicholas, a generous Christian saint. Legend has it that he threw gold into the stockings of three beautiful daughters who couldn’t afford their dowries; their father was worried they would become destitute and be forced to marry poor suitors.
Regardless of where the ritual originated, it has since evolved into hanging an empty stocking for Santa to fill with toys, candy, and trinkets on Christmas Eve. Some families even use boot-size stockings to hold more gifts for each member of the household.

The popular legend of the origin of Christmas stockings tells of a noble man named Saint Nicholas who secretly dropped a bag of gold down the chimney of a recently widowed father.

The stockings are made with durable red corduroy and feature a pretty felt holly detail on the cuff, toe and heel.
