As a kid, we never did the Christmas stocking thing. We do it now I guess in a way to make up for that last part of my childhood. We didn't have a place to hang the stockings, so we just had put them on the couch Christmas night.
Everyone typically just gets some candy. I was a bit more original however some of the candy I got was not. I got a whole bunch of Reese cups that was from Halloween. At least they all taste the same despite the wrapper.
