* It was an old custom to hang stockings on the chimney, so that Santa could put the presents in there. The tradition was that Santa threw coins down the chimney to help the poor. Nowadays, chocolate coins have replaced them.
* Striped Candy Canes is confectionary that kids love to crunch. Once, they were straight white sticks of sugar candy. According to traditional folktales, the candies were first bent at the end in the 1600s, in Cologne, Germany, to give them the look of a shepherd's crook, thus making them fit in more with the Christmas spirit.
* The girl in the picture combines the above two in her candy stockings; although it may be hard for some to see the Christmas spirit in this, it does fit in well with the cheerful spirit of Libertaria and the jolly Santa who likes his helpers. This is also where 'Kissing under the Mistletoe' fits in. The tradition follows the Norse fable in which Frigga, goddess of love and beauty, wanted to make the world safe for her son, Balder. She made sure nothing could do him harm but she overlooked the mistletoe. Loki, an evil spirit, made an arrow from the mistletoe's wood and killed Balder. Frigga's tears became the plant's white berries and revived her son. In her gratitude, Frigga promised to kiss anyone who passed under the mistletoe, just as we do today. Similarly, Libertaria holds the promise that kissing, love and beauty should be safe and should not be regarded as evil, but should instead be cherished.
Ho, Ho, Ho!
