Thomas the Train Christmas Stockings Are Not As Hard To Find As You Might Think

Many children have grown to love Thomas the Train.  Ever since he was first introduced through the books of the Revered W. Awdry, and later when he was brought to life through television, Thomas has turned into a worldwide phenomenon. 

Another thing that kids love is Christmas.  The lights, songs, and presents bring a sense of joy that truly makes it the most wonderful time of the year.  And for kids that love both Thomas the Train and Christmas, a Thomas the Tank Engine Christmas is the best of both worlds.
