Well everybody, I hope you've all hung your stockings last night, because St. Nicholas has come to town! ;) I've been good this year, so I got chocolate, some German candy, and an orange to fit in the toe of my stocking. I also got a pretty headband and an ornament. (Yes, a nearly 18 year old still gets her stocking filled on St. Nicholas Day. :P It's fun!)
THIS is Saint Nicholas. Not Santa.
I've heard many people say that their stockings are filled on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, which is odd, because then you might have Santa and St. Nicholas bump into each other in the dark! ;) They are two different people, after all. Personally, I like having stockings on the 6th because it spreads out the merriment a bit more, but hey, whatever floats your boat!
Do you have a Christmas stocking? What do you get in it?
