The next grandiloquent occasion after Halloween is Christmas. With the approaching Christmas, kids start whining for gifts also they start asking for their Santa stockings. In earlier days, things were not that complicated and purchasing stocking was not so difficult a venture. There were same stockings, sold for same price but today everyone looks for something new, something different something little extra to decorate their house. While comparing with previous days, stockings were purchased and names were written but today one may get personalised Santa stockings where not only names will be inscribed or knitted but also the design, color can be customized.
A story a legend
Santa holds much interest for kids, irrespective of age kids as well as elders look for gifts on the eve of Christmas, and for that they hang those socks and stockings, near the fireside. Today those traditional red stockings with white borders are no more in use. Rather well decorated stockings are gaining favour where Santa is likely to hide gifts for full family although this is not a whimsical act but hanging stocking has its story when in Holland a nobleman lost his fortune and right before Christmas he had nothing to buy for his daughters. Sensing the condition of the nobleman, St. Nicholas took the initiative to help them but the problem was, giving charity would be deemed an insult. He planned something, seeing the nobleman’s daughter hanging their stockings to dry near the fireside, St. Nicholas during the wintry night before Christmas climbed down through chimney and dropped one gold coin in each stocking. Next morning, when the daughters discovered the gold coin, the anecdote of Santa leaving gifts in stocking developed. However today, whether Santa comes or not, daddies wake up always in night to put gifts in stockings, only to have their children smiling in wonder, So Santa did visit !!!.
