Since Christmas is a major holiday, you will want to decorate your home. Besides the tree and other decorations, you will need to hang a Christmas stocking. These kinds of stockings can be found in a department store, a craft store, or online. Typically people hang stockings over their fireplace mantel. Each person in the house gets a stocking. On Christmas Eve, these stockings are filled with little trinkets and candy. The recipient will open the stocking on Christmas Day to see what they got. Usually, you will have to put your and your familys names on the stocking, so they will know who it belongs to.
