Christmas isn't just about opening presents on Christmas Eve. When I was a little girl my mother started a tradition of having Christmas stockings to open on Christmas morning. She didn't want us to feel like Christmas was "over". So she filled our stockings with candy, small toys, and lots of love.
Both my brother and I have continued this tradition. I introduced it to my husband and later to my son-in-law. There is something about watching others open their small gifts, eat their candy or drink their hot chocolate that come out of those stockings that touches my heart.
Does your family do Christmas stockings? If so, what do you normally find them?
