X'MAS STOCKING










Well there are only 36 days left for the great event of Infant Jesus' holy birth..Everybody in the blog land is eagerly preparing for that auspicious day..So am I.. Before uploading the pics I wud like to share a bit of info abt the tradition of hanging x'mas stocking on the fireplace mantel..




While there are no written accounts of the origin of christmas stockings,there are popular legends that attempt to tell us the history about this christmas tradition..One such legend has several variations but the following is a gud example:-Very long ago there lived a poor man and his three very beautiful daughters...He had no money to get his daughters married and was worrying what wud happen to them after his death...Saint Nicholas was passing thru when he heard the villagers talking about the girls...Saint Nicholas wanted to help them but he knew the old man wudn't accept any charity..He decided to help him in secret and waited untill it was night and crept thru the chimney...He had three bags of gold coins with him , one for each girl..As he was looking for a place to keep the bags he noticed the stockings of the girls that were hung over the mantel piece for drying..He put one bag in each stocking and off he went...When the girls and their father woke up the next morning they were overjoyed to see the gold coins in their stockings..The girls were able to get married and they lived happily ever after...This led to the custom of children hanging stockings , eagerly waiting gifts from Saint Nicholas..

This is my first stocking of the year..It took only one day to make it since there are no embroidery done on it..Even though its too early to hang it, after having made it I cudn't wait any longer to display it and show it to my frnds.. Hope to make a few more this season itself but there are lot a of pending work to be done before the event..I think 36 days will be enough to finish doing all of them..Wishing all my blogland frnds very happy stitching moments!!
