The Legend of the Stocking
Though there are many conflicting narratives as to the origin of this classic Christmas icon, one stands out above the rest. The story goes that a poor old fisherman had fantastic suitors ready for his daughters, but was too poor to pay the dowry and worried about what would happened to them after his death. Saint Nick passed through the town and heard of the fisherman’s plight. The old saint wanted to help but knew that the proud fisherman would sure not accept charity. He snuck into the old man’s home through the chimney with a bag of gold coins, looking for a suitable place to drop them off. When he saw the stockings of the fisherman’s daughter hanging to dry above the fireplace he knew he had found the perfect spot.
