My Mom was the Kris Kringle of the family. She did all the fun, all the shopping and all the traditional things every year. Well, now I'm "Mom"... One tradition we never did was Christmas stockings. We hung them but never FILLED them. I only heard about stocking stuffers when I was grown. I read the tread about stockings and want to add it to my Christmas tradition. Michael and I are the only people who celebrate Christmas in my family. I want him to have what I had, beautiful memories and unique traditions. I read the web information about the history and such but would like your ideas on how to do this. Are they hung and filled the night before then opened before or after the other presents are opened???? Excuse my ignorance!
