WESTFIELD, Ind. – They're hanging three additional stockings on the hearth this year -- and they're also having to explain exactly why they're hanging there.

Christmas traditions like meeting Santa are completely new to twins Asher and Micah and their younger brother Sawyer.

In March, they were adopted by Lauren and Joel Wright from an orphanage in South Africa.

Such a culture shock can come with a lot of questions – cute ones, too.

Watch our video in the player above to see exactly how the Wrights have worked to make it a very special Christmas for the three boys.

The Wrights were able to adopt the brothers though Bethany Christian Services. If you want to know more about Bethany Christian Services, tap or click here.
