What Do Stockings Symbolize in Christmas?
Hanging stockings above the hearth have been a long-standing custom. Where did the concept come from, though? Here are some stories that attempt to explain it:
– According to folklore, after the death of his wife, a nobleman grew despairing and stupidly spent his money. He and his three daughters eventually relocated to a peasant’s cottage, where they lived in misery. Without dowries, money, and property provided to the new husband’s family, the three young girls would not be able to marry. So St. Nicholas, ever generous, set out to assist them.
He threw three little pouches of gold coins down the chimney to stay anonymous, and they fell in the stockings that the young women had hung by the fireplace to dry. The three sisters discovered the gold coins in their stockings the following day, allowing them to marry and live happily ever after.
– Dutch children left their wooden shoes beside the fireplace, filled with straw for Santa’s reindeer, as well as a treat for him. The following day, instead of reindeer food, the children would find treats in their stockings.
– According to legend, an orange in the stocking signifies the gold left by St. Nicholas.
– The first formal mention of Christmas stockings being hung near a chimney appeared in the famous poem “Visit from St. Nick” in the early 1800s, which contains the favorite line… “The chimney hung the stockings with care In hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there.”
