White Stocking – a way of giving to Jesus with things that have been done for another and/or with what you are thankful for. #WhiteStocking
As this concept is new to me. I am sharing what I read about it in this blog post.
While working on a future blog post, How to Keep Christ in CHRISTmas, I came across this one site, Clark’s Condensed Modern Day Homemaking, sharing about this concept of putting up a stocking that is white in color.
In doing this, you hang a white stocking in front of the rest of the Christmas stockings hanging up. Yes, that is an extra one!
Each time someone does something kind for another person or even has something to be thankful for. They are encouraged to write it down and put it in the stocking. This is all done anonymously!
I am guessing white for Jesus for purity. I am guessing too so it can be shown to be different than the rest of the stockings that are hung up.
Reminds me of the Blessing Jar.
On Christmas Eve, they are taken out of the stocking and read out loud to the family. This is one way this one family said it was their gift to Jesus was. Sharing these blessings!
