The White Stocking

December 11th, 2012 | Posted by Annette in Perspectives


Sev­eral years ago I was frus­trated by the com­mer­cial­ism of Christ­mas. At that time my chil­dren were young. I wanted a fam­ily activ­ity that would bring us together, and so I wrote this poem and made a stock­ing out of white satin and gold trim. The idea was that we would each give a “gift” to the Sav­ior for Christ­mas. Each gift was to be some kind of ser­vice that we did for some­one else. We wrote our ideas on small dec­o­ra­tive pieces of paper and tied them with sil­ver and gold ties then put them in the stock­ing. This stock­ing is now full of the var­i­ous things our fam­ily has done for oth­ers dur­ing the hol­i­day season.
