"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!"
