3 Ways You Can Get Creative with Holiday Stockings

Have you ever wondered, “Why do we hang up Christmas stockings”


"The tradition of hanging up a stocking on Christmas and having it filled with presents goes back to the story of a generous man named Saint Nicholas, a real-life man who lived about 1,700 years ago and is the inspiration for Santa Claus! Saint Nicholas liked to do good things, especially for those in need. It’s said that in one of his most famous good deeds, Saint Nicholas left gold coins in the stockings of three poor sisters whose family did not have enough money to pay for their marriages. 

Today, many people who celebrate Christmas hang up stockings to be magically filled with gifts, just like the stockings of the three girls! Some kids even find an orange in their stocking every year as a reminder of the gold coins that started it all!"

Hanging up Christmas stockings during the holidays is a tradition that many households enjoy however, plain old right and white stocks are rather boring.

All It Takes is 2 Minutes 2 Times a Day

Seeking orthodontic treatment one way for you to make sure your oral health is in good shape. However, there are various factors that affect the health status of your teeth, such as: brushing, flossing and eating habits. When treating your teeth we want to be sure we are working with healthy teeth. Developing healthy habits start at a young age, so parents we must work together to teach children proper oral hygiene habits. 

For example, the 20 baby teeth that will appear in the first 3 years of your baby’s life are already there at birth, in your baby’s jawbones. Baby teeth are key for chewing, speaking and appearance. They also hold space in the jaws for upcoming adult teeth. Even though they fall out, your child’s baby teeth are important, and you need to take good care of them.

The Ad Council, a non-profit organization that helps promote public service campaigns, has started the 2min2x Children's Oral Health Campaign. states: 

The Children’s Oral Health campaign encourages parents to reduce their children’s risk of oral disease by making sure they're brushing for two minutes, twice a day.

The PSAs (Public Service Advertisements) aim to show that if parents spend just 2 minutes, twice a day making sure they brush, it can help save their children from a lifetime of tooth pain. The campaign demonstrates what a short amount of time 2 minutes is to accomplish such an important piece of parenting. We do this by showing parents trying to squeeze other parenting moments into just 2 minutes - and struggling in such a short period of time.

This website is a great tool for parents to refer to when looking for more information about taking care of their kids’ teeth, and it also has fun, entertaining 2 minute videos that kids can watch while brushing their teeth.

Here a PSA video for the campaign
