Shepherd's Bush Christmas Stocking Kit BRETT


From Shepherd's Bush, this is Brett's Christmas Stocking.


"When we were growing up, one of our family's Christmas Eve traditions before bed was to sing Christmas carols. Beginning with the youngest child and going up to the oldest grandparent, we each got to choose our favourite song to be sung by all; and after I had taken 2 weeks of piano lessons, I was the frightening but tenacious accompanist. Most everyone's choice of song changed throughout the decades with Teri and I gleefully holding out for Rudolph or Up on the Housetop for many, many years. But my Nana and my brother Brett always had their own favourite songs - not to be song by any other person. I can never again sing We Three Kings without tears in my eyes and the echo of Brett's booming, albeit off-key voice, echoing in my heart. This stocking is for those ancient, wise travelers and enthusiastic carolers alike. " - Tina Richards Herman, designer
