Yule need luck to win our festive gift

Finally, Guru’s stockings are going down well. In case you missed last week’s diatribe, we are giving away two very classy stockings filled with gifts, courtesy of our friends at Crowther Charrington Associates.

This friendly lot will arrange, research, source, deliver, pick up, organise and manage pretty much anything you need that you can’t get round to doing yourself because of your hectic (social) schedule.

In this case, they’ve stuffed one stocking for the girls and one for the boys, each worth £50. To enter this festive competition, just answer the following question: Christmas stockings originated in the Netherlands, but before Dutch children hung them by the fire, what did they use instead?

All answers must be sent to
