    We didnt celebrate holidays when I was growing up, so I dont know much about it. But I always thought the presents under the tree were supposed to be from Santa and the stockings were from family. lol, Shows how much I know!

    When I was little, yes!  Even when we knew he wasn’t real.  When we got older, no, because while my Mom did most of it, my sister and I would also put stuff in them too, so we would thank the person who gave the gifts.

    What!!!There is no Santa???

    Santa definitely filled our stockings as children. I’ll never forget the year he left us all only a lump of coal. We had no fireplace so Santa left our stockings at the foot of the bed. All our bedrooms were upstairs. We all ran crying downstairs to Mom and Dad where we discovered new stckings at the foot of the stairs filled with wonderful goodies. (My parents had a great laugh.)

    He still fills our stockings.    At least that’s what we pretend. We do each others’.

    100% Santa

    Like @julies1949: Reply # 6 said we always believed the Stockings came from Santa

    I have fond memories of them from my own Childhood

    For my own kids we maintained the tradition / story

    The stockings were hung in on our MB Fireplace, and that is where EVERY Christmas Morning began… everyone piled onto Mom & Dad’s Bed… opening stockings

    Even when everyone was older & grown, and we all were doing them on our own (fun to decide what tiny treasures to put in “grown up” stockings)

    We still said it was Santa’s doing (lol, or at least his Best Elves)

    @RenoSweeney24:  We still joke that Santa came because the stockings are filled.  When it was just our parents, we would loudly thank ‘Santa’ before though, whereas now, people are usually jumping in – oh that one’s from me, as we don’t always bother with tags for stocking gifts, so thanking Santa would just make the whole thing a bit more confusing when there are multiple gifters.

    @RenoSweeney24:  Santa didn’t stuff my stocking, my parents did. Santa did leave gifts under the tree though!

    ETA: I didn’t even know that Santa filled stockings!

    Even now the stockings are from Santa. Now that my siblings and I are old enough to buy gifts ourselves, we’ll get something to put in our parents stockings “from Santa”. This year it’s a necklace and some Jack Daniels.

    @RenoSweeney24:  Nope. I think we may have said “santa” for some time, but even our presents from “santa” were known to be from our parents. We never believed in santa, we weren’t told santa didnt exist but I knew it wasn’t real…

    Santa gave my sister, my brother and I big presents AND filled our stockings up. Once we were old enough to realise, Santa only gave us presents. Santa called mum one afternoon and said that she had to fill our stockings from then on because we were naughty and stopped believing…when we protested and said that it wasn’t true, she showed us a number in her phone and we stopped being ‘naughty’! Mum loved playing Santa Claus, but I still refuse to completely acknowledge that he may not be real.

    @RenoSweeney24:  If I decided to go home for Christmas this year my Mom would still stuff my stocking with Santa stuff and I’m 36.

    We always got an orange and a Toblerone bar, other candies and little gifts, like cheap bracelets or something.
