Christmas Stockings Reviews: 10 Best Picks

Christmas stockings are empty sock-shaped bags that are hanged on Christmas Eve for Santa to secretly fill with presents during the night and for the recipients to open the next morning. Little boys and girls believe that Santa would fill their Christmas stockings with presents if they were good the entire year. Tradition dictates that Christmas stockings are hung near a fireplace. Some people though placed them at the foot of their beds or under the Christmas tree.

Traditionally also, owners of the stockings have their names printed on them so that Santa would know which present would go to which stocking. Christmas stockings used to be just plain socks but soon people started making specially designed and personalized stockings.
