Stocking Stuffers. Did you ever want to know?
Hanging a stocking, or originally a sock or bag, Christmas eve originated in Europe. In early lore this is where gifts, if any were found. As far as we could research the beginnings of the use of Christmas stocking originated from a story about the Germanic/Scandinavian figure Odin. According to Phyllis Siefker (Author, Santa Claus, Last of the Wild Men), "children would place their boots, filled with carrots, straw, or sugar, near the chimney for Odin's flying horse, Sleipnir, to eat. Odin would reward those children for their kindness by replacing Sleipnir's food with gifts or candy." This simple tradition has survived the decades into what we have today, the Christmas stocking stuffed with nuts, fruit and small gifts.
Stocking stuffers is now a one way tradition. As much as we would like to see our kids fill their stockings with good report cards, notes telling their love for their parents or even cookies, today they are hung empty in anticipation of the stocking stuffers. Oh well.
Here at Knox's Spice Company we love the tradition although we get nothing but the appreciation of the stocking stuffers. This is why we decided to make the best stuffer a stocking could have, our gourmet all natural dry rub seasonings.
Sneaking our seasonings into a stocking Christmas eve will conjure great memories for months to come. Every time they use the tasty seasonings stuffed in their stocking they will thing of you and that wonderful morning in December. If you know of somebody who loves to cook and bbq and want to give them something special in their stocking you will not be disappointed with this unique gift.
Enjoy the Holiday!
