In my family we have had the same stockings since my brother was born in 1992. They are great tradition and every year when the stockings are hung on the mantel I truly know it is Christmas. I have moved houses and grown up quite a bit, as you can see in these two photos, but these red and white felt stockings have remained one of a constant and one of the things that really makes the holiday special for me.
(PS. I asked my mom last week and she did, in fact, make these stockings!)
