Phew ! Another Christmas is nearly upon us. You spend the last available time running around the city trying to find the perfect gift for your spouse or loved one, trying to snatch up the last Christmas tree and making sure you manage to at least get some Christmas turkey.

There should be an extension to make it Christmas weekend if you have kids that you need to keep entertained and also make time for the proverbial trek around the country to visit relatives.

So, would you agree that some Christmas stockings with a couple of mixed fillers hung next to the Christmas tree in the living room would be a great way to start your christmas celebrations.
