We know that Santa fills "stockings hung by the chimney with care", but sometimes he gets a little help from us. Why is it ten times more difficult to figure out what to fill those stockings with, rather than the bigger presents under the tree? Here's some help.
I've never heard anything as touching as the story of Brenda Schmitz. The mother and wife passed away in 2011 of ovarian cancer. Before she died, she wrote a letter to Iowa radio station, Star 102.5 Christmas Wish and asked a friend to send it in once her husband had found someone new.
