Advent Calendar : Christmas Stockings

Did you have one? Where did you hang it? What did you get in it? Do
you have any Christmas stockings used by your ancestors?

I can always remember having a stocking at Christmas.  We would always hang it on the fireplace.  One item that our stockings always included were a pair of tube socks.  Even today, when we go to mom & dad's, there is a pair of tube socks in a stocking for us.

Mom and dad contributed the following :
Weldon and I don't remember having a stocking at Christmas.   It could be because neither one of us had a fireplace to hang one.  My children had stockings and now the grandchildren have one, especially since we have a fireplace mantle to hang them on.   The children usually get candy, fruit, and maybe a small gift.
