Why Do We Hang Up Stockings

The Past 🎊🎉

According to tradition, the original Saint Nicholas put a bag of gold coins in three poor sisters stockings. One night the girls had left their stockings to dry over the fire place for the night. Saint Nicholas knew that the family was poor. So being the ,nice ,caring person he is he threw three bags of gold coins down the chimney. When it came down it landed in the three sisters stockings!

The Present 🎁

Today people hang there stockings hoping for presents from Saint Nicolas (Santa Claus) like candy canes, small trinkets, and many other things. It is quit diffrent from the past of what we do today before it was gold coins to the poor and now it is presents and other things to fill the stockings of presents and others.

Merry Christmas
