  • Where do you hang your stockings?

    I know it is done and over with but I wanted to ask this because people think I am weird for where I hang mine.

    We have a fireplace, pretty large one but I never hung the stockings there. I felt it looked sloppy. Instead, I hang them coming down the railing of my staircase.

    I like the staircase idea. Our previous house had a full basement however, no handrail and no fire place so we hung them from a tall coffee table which didn't have a great effect. We now live in a house with a wood burning fire place and that is there permanent home!

        I don't have stairs or a fireplace, so I have this rack. There's enough hooks for stockings for me, hubby, kid, dog & the cats all share one.

        To explain the chaos that is this picture (and lack of stockings!)......we celebrated Christmas early because Hubby & I were spending the holidays with his mom in Arkansas and the kid couldn't get off work to go with us (she's 19 and stayed with my sister). This is what we found when we got home on New Year's Eve.....a combination of a tree that was probably 20 years old, a cracked leg on the base and an 11 pound cat ....obviously didn't end well!

        On the plus side, it's the first time I'd EVER had a tree knocked over and I've had cats for the past 16 Christmases!

        Glitter is like the herpes of all holidays - once you have it, you can't get rid of it!!!

                I have a mantle so they go there but my friend uses the railing on her staircase.

                  We hang ours on the mantle but I gotta' say, I really like that "Believe" rack.

                    I used to hang my stocking on the wall, but ever since I moved to a house that has a fireplace, I now hang my stocking on the mantle.
