Play • 17 min

They're placed every year by the chimney with care, in hopes that Saint Nicholas soon would be there - to paraphrase the words of a certain Clement Clarke Moore. But what is the story behind the Christmas stocking, and what does Saint Nicholas actually have to do with the origin of this long-held festive tradition? In this episode, Tom and Joe consider the many different types of gift that can grace Christmas stockings around the world, as well as discussing some very unusual examples of the craft.
