on the closet with care? My family never used to have a fireplace. Mom has had one for two years now, but she still hangs the stockings in their traditional place, on the front entry closet door (thumbtacks). They can’t be filled where they are, because hello? One thumbtack barely holds the weight of the stocking, much less the stuff inside. My mom’s idea of stocking stuffers are larger than most family’s main gifts, however. She goes, shall we say, just a tad overboard.
I love our old stockings. We’ve had them for as long as I can remember, and my aunt Barb made them. I attempted to make one for Husband when he joined the family, and quickly learned that they are a LOT of work. And mine turned out nowhere near as nicely as hers, so subsequent members of the family (my sis-in-law and Anja) have received store-bought stockings. 🙂
That little crocheted stocking attached to mine used to be my cat’s. Even he got Christmas gifts.
Do you hang stockings?
