Christmas Stocking in ASCII Text Art

Christmas Stockings Past and Present

The stocking itself is fairly simple to create in ASCII art. It's the extras that take more effort. I've got one Christmas stocking here which is my own work. It's not what I hoped it would be but I did make it years ago. Should be time to try another one, maybe this Christmas and see what I can come up with.

What do you most like to find in your stocking on Christmas day? For me it's the Christmas oranges. Not anything glamorous or expensive but we would get them every year. It would keep all the kids busy while the parents slept in a bit longer. Then my Mom would be up and everyone would begin to gather. Sometimes we had breakfast before we began opening presents. I think as the children became teenagers presents got opened later more often. But, with four kids in the family we had someone who was still young and a believer in Santa Claus for many years.

This year I am sewing and embroidering Christmas stockings (seven of them) for a group of men who don't have much of a Christmas. My brother and sisters are working on getting things to fill the stockings. So far I have four fronts done. I thought I'd do all the decorating and then cut the backs and sew them all together last of all.
