Some traditions, including Christmas Wreaths, a star on top of the Christmas tree, holly, bells, and candy canes (just to name a few) are rooted in tradition based on the Christmas Story. Stockings, on the other hand, are one tradition that is based on an old legend about a man who wanted to help a poor family and managed to slip some gold coins into their stockings while they were hanging by the fireplace to dry. The purpose of the story is to teach about the importance of service, which is an especially wonderful thing to remember during the Christmas season.
