Day two of our Blogger Online Christmas Advent is by Rachel from Rachaels Book Nook.
This is a great idea on how to bring Christ back into Christmas by giving him his own stocking on your mantel.
We have this tradition at our house too. Years ago, I had my mother-in-law create a beautiful stocking out of nativity fabric. It is so different from our own stockings and stands out to remind the kids to fill it with acts of love and service throughout the year.

Every year I can’t wait to put up the Christmas decorations. Our house is filled with lights, trees, snowflakes and candy canes. I carefully place our Christmas stockings on the mantel and fill them with treasures for Christmas morning. We try to do things each year to keep in mind the true reason for the season, but the vast amounts of secular and commercial things thrown our way can make it difficult. One year in church a sister shared a yearly tradition her family kept that I just love and we’ve been doing it ourselves since then.
