Irish Christmas Stockings

Irish Christmas Stockings

Our Irish Christmas stockings are ready to be hung by the chimney with care. All our Christmas stockings, including the Irish prince and Irish princess stockings feature shamrocks.
According to legend, hanging a stocking on Christmas Eve evolved with St. Nicholas in the 3rd century in what is now part of Turkey.  St. Nicholas was a kindly bishop who frequently and anonymously helped those in need and in one instance it was a poor man who did not have any money for a dowry.  Subsequently the poor man's daughters could not marry.  St. Nick came to the rescue by leaving gold in the daughters' stockings that were hung by the fireplace to dry and thus the tradition began.

Like the girls in the legend of St. Nick, we bet you would like to find some gold in your Irish Christmas stocking too.  How about finding a gold Claddagh ring or maybe a Celtic knot band on Christmas morning?   The Christmas stocking are fantastic for smaller gifts; they don't necessarily have to be gold.  We bet that few would reject a silver Claddagh ring or a silver Celtic band, particularly one that is made in Ireland
