In Philip's family each member of the family contributes to each stocking. We have adopted this practice and I love it! It is so much fun to buy things for everyone's stocking (including this year my inlaws and brother in law). Then when it is time to "open" them everyone just dumps their stocking onto the floor and we figure out who bought what.
In my family our stockings were the only things we could open before our parents got out of bed on Christmas morning. I remember my sister and I running out to the living room to grab the stockings and then returning to one of our beds to open them. Then the agonizing wait would begin, but at least we had the contents of our stockings to keep us busy until 8am.
Does your family use stockings in their celebration of Christmas? How do they work in your house?
