So when Beano asked last year if we wanted to try...

Stocking or Sack Which do you prefer to fill at Christmas?

The eternal question, Christmas stocking or Christmas sack? A Christmas stocking is more traditional, great for hanging by the fire or at the end of the bed.

Our Best Christmas Jumpers in 2019
