Christmas Socks

“It’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”

fuzzy socks

Growing up, my aunt had this tradition of giving us clothes for Christmas. We knew which presents were hers–those telltale lightweight rectangular boxes! The worst was getting socks. I mean, did we really need socks every year?

But nowadays, I like having fresh, fuzzy socks to wear. And it looks like I’m not alone. Seniors also like having toasty feet. In fact, there’s a nonprofit called Socks for Seniors. (Check them out and support them!)

Go and spread some kindness (through socks or otherwise) over the holidays!

  1. Sometimes we tend to forget the basics we have and take for granted are a luxury for others. Thanks for reminding us.

    The Smartwool socks I bought this weekend for a Christmas gift for my sister (a senior) are both warm and luxurious.

  3. I love the Socks for Seniors idea. Clever concept. And I, too, like getting socks. One less thing to have to go shop for. :)

      That’s right. Sometimes people forget about the essentials. (As an aside, I always love getting PJs for the kids because everyone thinks about the outer clothes, but they jammies too!)
