We used to think if we hung any undergarment on the mantle on Christmas Eve that Santa would fill it with goodies. So one year, we put our theory to the test.
Wide-eyed and excited the next morning, we came downstairs and found our tube socks filled with all sorts of fruit and candy. Yippee! Our mother’s giant granny panties were practically busting at the seams with stuffed animals. Hooray! But sadly, our older brother’s jock strap hung like a droopy rag, with a shattered set of our much-wished-for Hummel figurines all over the floor below.
Apparently Santa, like us, didn’t realize that jock straps weren’t great at holding goodies. (At least not the kind we appreciated when we were six.)
But this year, there’s a place you can go where you’ll be guaranteed to get stockings full of incredible gifts, including restaurant gift cards, event tickets, hotel packages and original artwork.
It’s all at the Annual Christmas Stocking Auction this Sunday at the Round-Up Saloon benefiting the Legacy Counseling Founders Cottage. You can preview the stockings on Saturday on the Round-Up Parlor Stage. Because, you know, you’ll likely be there anyway.
Then on Sunday, get ready to bid for fabulous prizes.
None of which will be found in a G-string.
