    A lot of the time ours aren't able to hold the weight, so they're laid down under where they were hanging. Such a lovely vision.
    The holly's up, the house is all bright, The tree is ready, the candles alight; Rejoice and be glad, all children tonight.

    Indeed. And I will admit, that if I could only get one "thing" at Christmas, it would be a filled stocking. Always my last and favorite present to open...
    "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps, means a little bit more!"

    Me too! Except we always opened the stockings first.

    I can see and appreciate the anticipation in doing it first...

    Ours got a bit too heavy for the holders, so they are under the tree, front and center...

    Although they look really nice hanging full, no one ever wishes that they were less full, so they could hang instead of being laid down.
