Fun facts about Christmas

While the origin of the Christmas stocking is uncertain, the origin may lie in the popular legend of St. Nicolas. The story told of an old man with three beautiful daughters, but were too poor to get married. The father would not accept charity, so Saint Nick came in at night and put gold coins in the stockings hanging out to dry.
