Christmas socks (stockings, or boots) are historically an attribute of stories about Santa Claus, who goes down the chimney and puts a gift in a sock (stocking), which is hung over the fireplace, while ringing bells.

Socks for Christmas gifts were first used in America and Western Europe. As you know, in the fairy tales of these countries, it is believed that Santa Claus enters the houses of obedient children through the chimney. However, why did he start using socks and hosiery as gift wrapping? It turns out there is an interesting explanation for this.

One of the legends says that a widower once lived in a small English town, whose only wealth were his three daughters. The man was worried that due to poverty, he would not be able to provide his daughters with worthy dowries, and no one would marry them. On Xmas Eve, the widower shared his sorrows with a friend. By a happy coincidence, the man’s complaint was heard by Santa Claus himself, who decided to help the disadvantaged family. Santa Claus understood that the widower’s pride and modesty would not allow him to take money from him, so he decided to present the man’s daughters with gold coins as a Christmas present.

In Europe and the United States, on Xmas eve, parents decorate the fireplace with decorative socks, stockings and boots, and in the morning children find gifts in them. It seems that this tradition was only invented as another fun way to present long-awaited toys and sweets. But, in fact, the custom of hiding gifts in Christmas socks has a long story.

This is one of the very easy lessons that will help you understand what things look like. If you really want to learn how to depict different objects, then you need to constantly practice your skills and illustrate whatever you want.

If you need more complex and realistic pictures, then try to depict a crocodile on paper, or Natsu from the anime.
