I love how many traditions are packed into the holidays! One of my favorite traditions for Christmas when growing up was opening my stocking.
I LOVE the tradition of hanging stockings! Each family member represented by a large hanging sock!!!
When my siblings and I were little, one of us was bound to wake up at the crack of dawn on Christmas morning, and would wake up the other two siblings. We'd whisper back and forth over if we thought that we could wake my parents up yet... or was it too early? I loved those crazy early mornings!!!
We'd have to patiently sit at the top of the staircase while the lights and tree were turned on, and while my Dad began brewing his coffee. It seemed like an eternity of top step sitting, but eventually we'd be ushered downstairs on Christmas morning- and we would always begin with opening our stockings.
Is stocking stuffing an enjoyable part of your gift giving for your family, or is it a tradition that continues on because your kids would miss it if your weren't hung by the chimney with care?
