i'm amazed at the amount of people who have never had stockings.  i dunno what i would have done if i didn't have a stocking back when i was little.  you know, back when you would get up at ungodly hours of the morning on christmas because you were so excited?  my parents would only let me go through my stocking presents until they woke up (which always took way too long...).   Cheesy

Yeah, I had one as a kid too, my folks had the same rule, stay in your room till you were called for Christmas breakfast and presents after that. The stockings were bribery to keep you occupied till then and were always filled with little colouring books, felt tips and coloured pencils, puzzles and other little toys. And bizarrely enough, nuts, in their shells, I could never work out how you were supposed to eat them without nutcrackers. Then there was the obligatory satsuma, but who wants to eat a satsuma on Chrustmas morning.
Ah, the good ole days. No-one ever gives you a stocking when you're an adult  Undecided

My parents did the same thing to me. It was tourure cause 'santa' usually put a few items in my stocking that went with my big present, like doll clothes the year I got a cabbage patch, or CDs the year I got a better stereo, a little apron and oven mitts when I got an easy bake oven, you get the idea. and to add to the torment, I wasn't allowed to eat the candy until after breakfast. The three hours between when I woke up and whenmy aprents woke up were the most exciting and brutal of the year lol

Irish Chicky, I love your avatar!!!

Thanks!! I found it online somewhere Smiley


I was so sad when I had to fill my own stocking last year Sad I'm totally getting my hubby to do it this year, no matter what! haha

My parents always made me open my stocking first, then eat breakfast, then open all the other presents. I miss those days.

My sisters and I all had stockings, in fact we still do. My dad made them when we were little and also made one for my mom and one for himself. Every year small things are put in the stockings, like candy and $2 bills, etc.   
As for the waiting for the parents to wake up, we would go and bug them until they woke.

My parents would wake us up. lol
We would open our stockings first, one item at a time from youngest to oldest. Even if you pulled out a pecil eraser, that was your one item.... Christmas tension would last for 2 hours opening all of our gifts like that and my parents got a smile and a thank you for every gift we opened instead of just tearing in right away. We still do that and I love it!

My folks would usually put (in  shell) nuts in our stockings too.  I never understood that as a kid either.  The four of us kids would dump 'em into a bowl and Dad would crack them for us throughout the day.  We always got an apple and an orange along with some candies and sometimes little toys and trinkets.  I always loved going through my stocking.  It was always a special treat, even when times were especially lean, Mom and Dad managed to put something in our stockings to look forward to on Christmas morning.  Smiley
