Christmas stockingsHanging of Christmas stockings is just one of the many traditions that I got from my mom. I remember getting lots and lots of gifts from dear Santa for as long as I go to sleep before the clock strikes at 12 midnight and that I have been a good girl all year round.

I remember the first time I did this activity with Deye, she was just 3 at that time and with full excitement she opened her Christmas stocking only to find out that Santa gave local chocolates. She then said out loud “Ayyyy Chocnut??!!!”

I have been doing this practice since my eldest, Deye, turned 2. Now that I have two kids, I still do it and so far it has been a great activity for both of them every Christmas Eve.
