What Is The Tradition Behind Hanging Christmas Stockings?

Have you ever wondered: Why do children often use socks (socks) to hold Christmas gifts?

This tradition is rooted in a legend related to St. Nicholas from the 3rd century. It is said that once Saint Nicholas - then Bishop Nicholas, passed by a poor family whose daughter was of marriageable age. According to the custom of the time, birth parents had to give the brides a dowry - the greater the value, the more favorable it was for the maidens to marry. But the father is too poor to buy his children valuable things. Knowing the story, Saint Nicholas threw gold coins into the chimney of that family. The gold coins fell into several pairs of socks that were hung over the fireplace to dry. This led to the custom of children hanging socks under the chimney to wait for gifts from Saint Nicholas.

Most countries have their own legends about Santa Claus. This year's festival season, Jonxifon sends to the children a gift stocking with eye-catching and brilliant motifs that will make them extremely excited. Gift socks are used as decorative objects to hang in the house, on the nightstand, the fireplace or on the Christmas tree. Parents, please write a letter with your children about the gift they want to receive and put it in the sock. Replace your baby's letter with the gift in the sock. So that when the baby wakes up on Christmas Day, it will be filled with joy and headlines all day.

At Jonxifon, parents can also personalize each sock with their baby's name, creating an unique look.
