At Home

stocking 1

From the Momfilter Archives 

Last summer I found this family stocking in a junk shop in Maine. From what I can deduce by looking at both sides, the family listed each year who was at Christmas, and the address. In 1951 they had Aunt Alice, Uncle Bill, Daddy, Mother, Marjorie, and Brad. This continued until 1955, when the aunts and uncle were no longer on the stocking. Lots happened between then and 1966, because Daddy became Grandpa, and then in 1972 there was a 6 day old Jeremy at Christmas. It carries on up until 1976. I just need to find a stocking that has enough white cloth to write on, and am going to start this myself, so if you have any suggestions…and, if somehow, you might know the rightful owner of this stocking, I’d like it to be returned to them.
