This concept of gifts and Christmas stockings come to us from several stories which have been prevalent since ages. In some stories, the gifts are wrapped up and filled in the stockings and in other stories the gifts are simply kept under the Christmas tree. Also, there are several legends related to the origin of this tradition of Christmas.

As reported, the event was organised with the aim of raising fund for a charity which helps the old and aged people.
