Day 21 ~ Stockings

Why do we hang stockings? I decided to Google that question, and the answer is pretty interesting. Click this link if you want to see for yourself ...clicky clicky!

Do you have any personal family traditions at Christmas time? We follow pretty much the regular, historical traditions, but the one thing I do which I really like is to buy the kids a very special ornament, one that's maybe a bit pricey, and I put them away in a box for them. We don't use their decorations...so one day, when they've grown up and are moving out, I will give them their box of decorations, ready to hang on their very own trees at Christmas time. And they'll be new, but old, and very special.

Only four more sleeps til Christmas!

I buy the kids a decoration every year (well, sometimes Liberty gets more than one!) and add a tag to it with the year on it. They do all hang on our tree...soon we'll be needing two trees!
