1 Story of the
I Christmas Stocking
KAl!S uiul years stock
Inc were not It mix on
Christmas eve nn we hnnn
litem now. No one ever
heard oC sueli u thintf nit
hanging up a Btwklim (or
Christmas Rifts. Anil if
children had thought of such h thing
they would have siild, "What a foolish
I'Ihk ! A storking wouldn't hold half I
the thing wu want." So ttiu children
tliniuhiiut fh v-rlil placed crtx-ks,
hlK bnu tmftlns, mil Copper kettles I
'it llii hearth on Christmas eve and I
left imtex In them tailing Sniitii to !
Illl thfiu to the hrlm. Kach year the i
children left larger cssels to he tllli'il,
oh ! Iiln-u Wt larger vessels to he HI led.
I la the (front while north Santa's
reindeer no longer pranced and pawed,
Impatient to bo off on Christmas evo,
us they oiicp hud done. They liintg
their heads und a tired look came
Into their hlg brown eyes, fur they re
iiicinliored how heury tlio loud had
grown nail how tunny more trips they
were forced to iniiko year hy year.
SI. Nicholas no longer rented lloW
tlirnuuh the summer nioiiihs, as ho
oni'c hint done, hut Jalimcd evorry
'lay throughout the year, and ofien he
hullt iiijs Into Into tin night, for n
greut many gifts had , to hp male to
till the haskets Hint the greedy children
left. The twinkle left his merry eyes,
and he no lonKer sang uhont his work,
for he was nail anil thought of Hie
time iliat would come when he could
no Pinner build enough presents to go
I.nle on I)ecpinher day St. Nicholas
stepped from his workshop Into th
deep snow. Facing the south, he
Wretched out his tired arms nnd
called : "Hear, oh hear, children of the
earth, my loved ones, cun you not see
ymi are heVomlng selfish and that your
(treed y deuinnds are too (treat a task,
even for St. Nicholas, king of the
Christmas spirit ? Can't you see, my
children, that you are killing the spirit
His chin sank upon his chest and
tears glistened In his kindly eyes. A
soft white snowfliike fluttered down
and nestled against his cheek, and a
tiny voice whispered Into his ear:
"gnnta, I will help you."
"Who are your asked St. Nicholas
"I am a snow fairy," answered the
tiny voice. "As my sisters and I have
danced about the air we have often
swirled about your sleigh on Christ
inns eve, and have seen the (treat
.loiids yiiii hiivi always cnrrled anil
how tired you have looked."
"What, ( what, shall I do?" ashed
"Just go about your work as usual,"
answered the fairy "I and all my
sisters will help yon."
"Oh, thank you thank you," cried
St. Nicholas. And the fairy floated out
among the oilier snowflnkcs.
As the children went about the
snowflakes whirled around them, and
It seemed as If they henrd the chant
ing of tiny wires, and as the snow
flakes nestled against their ears they
seemed to sing: "Just a stocking
hang a stocking up on Christmas eve."
"Just a stocking Just a stocking,"
rang through the hearts of the children
on Christmas eve. And In place of
leaving the great vessels as they once
had done they Just hung up their
Some children were too selfish to
hear the song of the snowflnkcs nnd
left the great baskets as they always
had done. Hut when they saw the
great Joy the unselfish children had
In their gifts and how contented and
happy they were these selllsh ones
were nshntiied, und they, too, begun
to hang up only their Workings when
Christmas eve nunc round.
When St. Nicholas found stockings
In place of the great baskets and
barrels the twinkle came iil-kIii Into
bis Ih uuhlng eyes, bis cheeks grew
red, and be sang as be drove through
the merry sin of snowflakes.
With Just stockings in II 1 1 St.
Nicholas bail time to rest, and he
grew strong and well, and the spirit
of Christmas lived. So this Is why
nowadays we hang up our stockings
on Christmas eve. All this we are
told by a writer, who learned It from
a Christmas fairy.
