ITEM #: 32434 Holiday Hearth Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass & Glitter
From Old World Christmas. Hanging a stocking by the fireplace became popular in the 1800s. Legend has it that St. Nicholas tossed bags of gold down the chimney into stockings drying by the fire that belonged to three poor sisters who lacked dowries. Today, children still hang stockings hoping for a Christmas surprise.
