      Snow is in fact translucent, so it doesn't actually have a colour and will take on the colour of the light shining upon it.

      Where did Christmas stockings evolve from?

              The largest Christmas stocking measured 51 m 35 cm (168 ft 5.65 in) in length and 21 m 63 cm (70 ft 11.57 in) in width (heel to toe) and was produced by the volunteer emergency services organisation Pubblica Assistenza Carrara e Sezioni (Italy) in Carrara, Tuscany, Italy, on 5 January 2011.

              The event was organised in order to raise money for a charity helping the aged, one of the group’s key functions, and it was also a seasonal celebration for the city of Carrara.
              Fulfilling the guideline that the stocking had to be filled with presents, the volunteers filled the stocking with balloons containing sweets inside. (Yes, I googled it!!)

                    It isn't actually known, but there is the theory they could have been inspired by the stories of the Brothers Grimm in Germany.
