Interesting Christmas Info - Christmas Stockings

christmasHave you ever wondered why people put socks on their fire place during Christmas? In the 12th century, French nuns would put stocking full of fruit, nuts and tangerines and leave it at the house of the poor.



Today Christmas tradition, parents still prepare an empty sock or sock-shaped bag for their children and hang it at home on Christmas Eve so that Santa Claus can fill it with small toys, candy, fruit, coins or gifts when he arrives during night but those who behave badly during the year will only receive a piece of coal.
