    this year the extra stocking is for John Matthew. I am glad I am not the only one that does one for their animals.

    I hang two because there are only two of us at home. I tried hanging one for each child when the kids lived at home, but it was too expensive to fill them for four kids so we quit doing stockings for several years. We didn't have stockings when we were kids. I was a SAHM and we usually had only one income; some years I provided childcare in our home, but we still didn't have that much money.

    One year we gave a gift to our parakeet, but he didn't have a stocking.

    Oh no, we've had stockings for our animals since I was a child. Why, at one point growing up we had 8 stockings on our mantle - mom, dad, me, sister, brother, dog #1, dog #2, and even one for my igauna!
