Advent Calendar of Memories - Stockings

Did you have one? Where did you hang it? What did you get in it?

Christmas 1952 I am almost 3 years old. My sister and I are sitting beside the "fake" fireplace" Our stockings are hung waiting for Santa. The fireplace was made from wooden orange crates covered in "brick" paper. Did your family make use of these wooden crates for furniture such as bedside tables?
An orange usually was in the toe of the stocking. There would be a few toys and some candy.
In my teens, we graduated to tights and these were put over a chair. When we moved from the apartment over the corner store that we owned, the fireplace did not come with us. (not as a fireplace anyways).
