The holiday season is upon us, and it is definitely the time to put up your holiday decorations, if you haven’t already. You decorate your Christmas tree with colored lights, garland and the like and place it in a location where everyone can see; but what about your stockings? If you don’t have a mantel, exactly where you do you place your stockings for Santa to fill? Walker Edison has a few suggestions for you.
Hang Your Stockings With Care This Holiday Season With Walker Edison #Gift Guide
The most popular legend about why stockings are hung at Christmas goes something like this: A recently widowed man and father of three girls was having a tough time making ends meet. Even though his daughters were beautiful, he worried that their impoverished status would make it impossible for them to marry.
St. Nicholas was wandering through the town where the man lived and heard villagers discussing that family’s plight. He wanted to help but knew the man would refuse any kind of charity directly. Instead, one night, he slid down the chimney of the family’s house and filled the girls’ recently laundered stockings, which happened to be drying by the fire, with gold coins. And then he disappeared. Courtesy of The Smithsonian Magazine
We celebrate that tradition today in a lot of creative ways. Perfect for small space living, Walker Edison’s electric fireplace consoles set the appeal for Santa even without the chimney.
With ‘Maw in her cap’ you can capture St. Nick’s prize with stockings on the bed.
A stocking on the back of a dining chair will send the right message to the Little Man in Red when he enjoys the milk and cookies.
