Stockings are my favorite part of Christmas. You find everyThing in there from fruits and candies to ornaments and novelties. It's the first Thing I think about when I wake up on Christmas day. And here's someThing you might not know -- there are three kinds of stocking people: dumpers, pickers and savers.
- Savers work their stockings from top to bottom. They'll pull out a treat here or there, but they save the rest for later or even -- gasp! -- for another day.
- Pickers poke and pick through their goodies looking for just the right Thing for the moment. It might be a piece of candy or it might be a set of trick dice.
- Dumpers like me pour the whole Thing out on the floor and then root around in the pile for the best goodies.
Whether you're a picker, saver or dumper, I hope your Christmas Stocking is filled with Things you love -- and not one single lump of coal!
I'll see you next week,
