Tis the season for hot cocoa, brisk morning walks, diffusing all the yummy citrus + pine essential oils, baby + puppy cuddles, cozy fires and picking out the most special gifts for the ones you love. We are celebrating the season by turning on our worship daily and basking in the marvel of our King who came as a babe in a manger. Recently I did some digging on where the tradition of stockings came from and I loved the story so thought I'd share!
Saint Nicholas of Myra was an early Christian bishop during the time of the Roman Empire. He was known for the miracles he performed along with random acts of kindness and his over the top generosity. He is also who the popular fictional Santa Claus character stems from. One story about him says there were three sisters who were going to be sold as prostitutes because their parents had no dowery for them. When Saint Nick heard of this he threw three bags of gold into their home through the window which landed in their shoes and stockings by the door. It was enough money for each of the girls not to be sold into prostitution but rather to be able take husbands of their own. Thus the tradition of stockings at Christmas was born!
Today we celebrate by filling stockings full of things we know our loved ones might need but also may want ;) Here is a list of our favorite healthy + fun stocking stuffers!
