Christmas Stockings...

So now that we are parents... and the holidays are not about drinking and staying out late and hanging with friends... its about trick-or treating... the Easter Bunny, Santa... I am wondering what you parents do who DO NOT have fire place...

What do you tell you kids about how Santa gets in the house? Where do you hand your stockings? How does all that go?

Our son is only 8 months but someday we are gong to have to figure out how santa gets in the house and where to put our stockings...

Thanks :)

    Honestly I remember when I was little we never had a fireplace growing up. We knew Santa landed on the roof but we never questioned how he got in...he was Santa...he could do anything! lol We always had a spot on the wall that we hung our stockings and that is what we have always done with our kids.

      My mother in law has stocking holders. Boards with pegs. You can find them at any store in the holiday section.
      Or use command hooks.

        Santa is magical but meant to share a story of how one man gave to the less fortunate once a year. http://www.stnicholascenter.org/pages/who-is-st-n…
        Hope this site helps some.

          We tell them Santa makes a fireplace appear and he comes in that way & we hang the stockings on the wall now that we have our own place I'm wanting to get an big electric fireplace so we can hang the stockings on there and have the tree near it as well I hate not having a fireplace but it doesn't get that cold enough here :( not very many houses out here have a fireplace we'd have to move north for that. hope that helps

            I'd just say.. Santa is MAGIC and a fireplace magically appears and he leaves the presents! hehe

              We buy fake cardboard fireplaces at Amazon, Michaels or Acmoore and hang the stockings there. My son never asks where Santa came from lol

                  My daughter is only 2 so she really has no idea but when I was little we had a chimney but it went to a wood stove. So Santa couldn't exactly take that route. My parents told me that Santa was magical & could turn himself into a twinkle of light & go through the key hole of the door to get in. I never questioned it! And we just hung our stockings wherever. We do not have a chimney now so if my daughter ever asks I will probably tell her the same thing.
