Wedding Favor Bags a la Christmas

2012 was the year I must have attended one wedding every other month. Weddings come in spurts, it seems. Many of my aunts and uncles celebrate anniversaries in November or December, while the younger crowd tends to favor May through September.

Looking through the old albums and talking to relatives, most of the grandparents and aunts and uncles used Jordan Almonds and placed them in wedding favor bags of mesh tulle or in the unavoidable plastic swan.

 While perusing the albums, my cousin wondered why nobody used Christmas stockings or Santa sacks for their wedding favors. I asked, "Whoever gets the coal in their stocking gets the centerpiece, right?"  If you were married around Christmas time, was it closer to a Christmas with the Von Trapps or was it more like a Santa's mall castle gone haywire?
