A Favorite Holiday Tradition

When I was growing up, and even now, stockings are some of my favorite parts of the holidays. A favorite holiday tradition to receive in my stockings has always been candy. I mean duh right? Growing up candy was a HUGE part of our stockings and I can remember running to the living room to get my stocking and spending the rest of the day snacking on the candy that was inside!

Of course some of my favorite candies to receive as a child have not changed. Butterfingers, SweeTarts, Gobstoppers (willy wonka fans?), and Nestle Crunches! When I was away at college my mom would send me finals care packages around the holidays and I would get so pumped to have chocolate to study for finals with! So something about these candies always reminds me of the holidays.

Now that I have my own home, and a husband that I get to do a stocking for, I always fill his with candy too! We love the same candies and Andrew’s current favorite are the Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cup Snowmen! So usually the way I do it is put his non candy gifts on the bottom and then I let the candy kind of pour out! Our tradition is to leave stockings on the floor by the fireplace or tree after they are filled!

Something about stockings are just THE MOST FUN! Am I right? Since Andrew fills my stocking I am really hoping for some Nestle Crunch, SweeTarts, Sprees, and Gobstoppers!

Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cup Snowman and Original Spree and Everlasting Gobstopper Snowballs in Reindeer-themed packaging are the perfect festive addition to stuff stockings this holiday season.

Everlasting Gobstopper Snowballs are the colorful and never ending gift that keeps on giving for all your loved ones this snow-filled season with no artificial flavors! Share the joy this holiday season with this the Nestlé Crunch Medallion (my favs), beautifully molded with a festive gingerbread man and his adorable little pup in a winter setting!

I mean if I got it, it would be gone in a few days!

      “Mrs. Claus” would leave us a present while we were out at midnight mass. It was always festive PJs that we would change into right away! My sisters and I loved getting those PJs each Christmas Eve and it is a tradition that I want to carry on with my children.

      We always had stockings when I was a kid, an orange, some nuts and hard Christmas candy. With my children I started putting small gift items in their stockings, nothing eatable. Now daughter does stockings for all of us and they have small gifts and lottery tickets in them. I love the stockings and save mine till last after the bigger gifts. Merry Christmas.
