Do you really know the origin of Christmas stockings
Are you spending Christmas Eve, do you really know the origin of Christmas stockings?
We all know that the birth of Christmas is for Christians to commemorate the birth of the Savior Jesus. As for Santa Claus, each country and region has different concepts. In the United States, the prototype of Santa Claus is a saint named Saint Nicholas. He has become a respected figure because of his charity, kindness and kindness. But this is not the case with Christmas stockings. It is even a small oolong incident:
Rumor has it that there was a kind-hearted aristocrat who lived alone with his three daughters after his wife passed away and his family fortune was gone because of his excessive philanthropy. Until the age when her daughters got married, they didn't have enough money to buy dowries for their daughters. Saint Nicholas learned about this when he passed by, so he took out three small bags of gold from his pocket and threw them down the chimney of their house at night. By coincidence, the gold happened to fall into the stocking of the girl hanging next to it. In this way, the story of "socks became a Christmas gift vessel" came into being.
