What Do You Hope to Find in Your Stocking?

Posted by Larry Doyle on December 24, 2009 10:01 AM |

Christmas morning in the Doyle home in the ’60s and ’70s was priceless. With seven siblings (six brothers and one sister), the living room was quickly turned into a scene which could only be compared to a mini-earthquake. Throwing gift boxes across the room, quickly playing with games and toys, screaming for joy. The memories are precious.

The knitted stockings hung by the fireplace remain a prized possession. The gifts in the stockings may have been the smallest in size, but often they brought the greatest pleasure. Tickets to a college sporting event were always a hit.

After the bedlam had settled, typically around 7am, we would make a mad dash for the kitchen and Mom’s donut muffins. Pure sugar and truly awesome.

As the kid in all of us anticipates waking up on Christmas morning, I send best wishes to all the readers of Sense on Cents.

What do you hope to find in your stocking?
