I've always dreamed of a lovely wood burning fireplace with a huge mantle to hang my stockings off of. Unfortunately, while living in an apartment, that dream is still a ways away. SO, I want to know how or where do you display your family stockings?Huh?

(Mods please let me know if I've posted this in the wrong place)

At home my family does the whole fireplace thing, but this year while I'm at college I'm planning on just hanging one up on some bare wall space using whatever those hooks are that are attached with adhesive stuff and are supposed to come off cleanly. This way it also doubles as some seasonal wall art. Wink

My family uses the stand the TV is on. Although one year my mom put them under the tree and let us open them on the 24th

My apartment had a breakfast bar type of counter top, dividing the kitchen from the living room. We put stocking hangers (like you'd put on the mantle) on the edge of that. It was a little low (just above waist-level) but it made things look festive when you were sitting in the living room.

We don't have a fireplace, and we have no room for a fake one, so we're most likely going to hang our stockings from the tv stand.  My dad didn't have a fireplace in one of the houses he lived in when I was a kid, and he would just drape the stockings on an armchair.

I do have a gas log fireplace, but we use it and it's not safe to have the stockings hanging in front of it. I hang my stockings in a large entryway between our living room and dining room. I hang 2 on each side with those little plastic removable hooks. I have moved them to in front of the fireplace on Christmas Eve but it's not practical for us to have them there the whole month of December.

I know this is an old post from last year, but wanted to put my 2 cents in for anyone still trying to figure this out.

When I was a kid, we did not have a fireplace, but we lived in a house from the 1920s with lots of beautiful original woodwork, including the staircase. My mom always hung a garland on the banister of the stairs, and she used yarn or ribbon to hang our stockings from the garland. This way, they were right there when we made our way down stairs in the morning.

At my Mom's townhouse we tied them to the railing by the stairs. At my apartment last year we hung them up over the heater/radiator with push pins, and this year we're in a new apartment so they'll either hang on the windowsill or some other place. I'm going to make a faux fireplace that I might put beneath them as well.

My Mom has always hung them on the stair railing.

When I was little, we (my sister and I) put ours on the doorhandles of our bedroom doors, on the side facing out of our room. Then the Christmas elf (aka our parents) put in presents for us during the night Smiley

We have a bay window at the end of the living room and we always put our tree there, then hang the stockings on the window edges on either side.  Since there's only four of us at the moment, it works out perfectly and always looks great. 

When I was little and we lived in Florida, we always stacked stockings on the couch in a neat little row on Christmas Eve Smiley
