Well in my circle of friends and family, it seems to mean socks. Pairs of them. Multiple packs.
One friend decided I might need help remembering my name, so there it is - emblazoned on each ankle. Another friend had been ahead of the game and gave me a similar pair last year (similar in that they were socks with my name on).
Some socks are too beautiful to wear. The creamy sheep ones are surely made to be cuddled?
Whenever I wear these socks I shall always be reminded of the spirit of Christmas - of the poor shepherds who washed their socks at night.
Peace and warm toes to all men!
