Personalised Christmas Sacks and StockingsWe offer a lovely range of personalised Christmas Santa sacks and personalised Christmas stockings suitable for children and babies.
Most of us who celebrate Christmas enjoy the ritual of hanging out a stocking or sack for Santa to hopefully fill with goodies; but do you know where the origins of this tradition lie?
The most cited, centuries-old legend involves a story of a recently widowed father of three beautiful daughters. The story goes that the father feared his daughters would not attract husbands due to their impoverished position and this played heavily on his mind. The local village folk were discussing his plight when they were overheard by Saint Nicholas. The legend continues with good St Nick taking pity on the poor family and so while they were asleep he dropped gold coins down their chimney. The daughters’ newly laundered stockings happened to be drying near the fire and of course the coins landed directly in them and behold the Christmas stocking was born. In the morning the now-eligible daughters were overjoyed with their newfound wealth and undoubtedly all lived happily ever after.
No one knows exactly where this story hails from but it certainly sums up the Christmas spirit and importance of charity at this time of year. The Christmas stocking has remained a steadfast tradition throughout the world at Christmastime, except now you can choose from a huge range of Christmas sacks or personalised Christmas stockings to hang up in anticipation each Christmas Eve.
