  • When I was a kid we have stocking but they contained no presents. Hard candy in the toe then nuts, an apple, an orange and a banana sticking out the top. That is what we could eat before Christmas dinner..period. As adults we have broken the habit..but Mom still trys to revert now and then.

  • We had stockings and opened those first. We were allowed to dig into those before the parents were up. We had to wait for the gifts :)

  • We all had stockings, though dad usually forgot to put moms gifts in hers (he would wrap them and put them under the tree). I always saved mine for last, but there was no standard in my family as to when to open it.

    Usually we got personal hygene things, and a paperback book or two :)

  • I did and still do. at my parents house, we open stockings then gifts. at my nana's house(on xmas eve) we do the same. at my other grandma's house*xmas day) we do the grandkids gifts, then the "adults" gifts(i am 23 but also one of the grandkids) and the stockings for the grandkids. I have been filling my cousin's stockings for a few years now since my grandma wasnt going to do them anymore. to me, its not xmas without stockings!

  • We always had stockings and that was my favorite part. I insisted on continuing the tradition with my family. I even get my dogs stockings and always put a bone and a toy in them for each dog. We always opened stockings first and still do.

  • I had a stocking growing up, I still do and so does my husband and the kids. Even the dog has one. We open our stockings first then our presents.

  • We have stockings. There was ALWAYS an apple and an orange at the bottom of my stocking. So i carry on that tradition. my goal every year is to put as little candy as possible in it ( I do the same thing with Easter baskets!). They are filled with dollar tree stuff and this year a Webkinz!
