Socks are a major part of our wardrobe. They range from plain white crew socks to just about anything you can imagine. Socks are no longer just to keep our feet warm and comfortable. They are often a fashion statement or just plain fun. The various themes on the market seem to be never ending.
In my sock drawer, there are ankle, crew, knee-high, wool, summer weight, heavy duty and various other kinds of socks in multiple colors. But none stand out like my Christmas socks, which were a gift from a friend.
These socks are bright and colorful in traditional Christmas holiday colors. Green and red stripes adorn the main part of the socks. The cuffs fold down and are decorated with tiny gold bows, while the bottom of each sock has the words, "ho ho ho". They make me laugh every time I see them. When I received them, they had bells too, which jingled anytime I moved my feet. I found this to be quite entertaining, but they eventually came off, which was probably for the best. My husband wasn't quite as entertained with the constant jingling as I was.
Putting on decorative, silly socks can start your day off with a smile. It works for me. I just wish I had some for other holidays. Maybe I'll send out a hint....
