You Know You're Getting Older When...

...you don't mind finding socks in your Christmas stocking.

Here I am looking all happy. 'Cause who wouldn't be happy with fun socks?

Socks can be a nice stocking stuffer, especially if they're fun and colourful.

But not all of us (older) folks think so.

"Socks? Who the heck is this happy about getting socks?"

What did you find in your stocking? Anyone get socks?

  1. Yes, LOL! My Rare One put a pair of socks in my stocking too. I kinda had your husband's reaction. But it's the thought that counts!

  2. Our family gets just about the same reaction as yours. And, no I did not get any socks for Christmas. It was a lovely time.

  3. What a great assortment of colorful socks too :) I used to love to get thick wooly type socks when we lived in Montana; anything to keep the feet warm :) I think socks is one of those "go to gifts" if you aren't sure what someone might need; I found myself buying socks for several people on my list this past year.

    1. Those wooly socks are very welcome here, as well. It does get awfully cold in the winter. But I really like the colourful ones. Much more fun!

    1. The socks rounded it out, Linda :) No, not moving yet. It was very quiet over the holidays but it should pick up very soon. I would have loved to have moved by now but some things are out of my control!

  7. My husband and I are both thrilled when we get socks. Arms go up and we yell, "Score!" My sister actually goes to a specialty sock store and buys a pair of socks for all members of the family that relate to them. This year mine are salmon, navy blue and yellow. They say "My favorite salad is wine!" Touchdown!

      I love your sister's idea. Lots of fun!

  12. OMG, this is too funny. When I was a kid, I used to buy one of my older brothers socks every Christmas. I don't know why but I insisted. To this day we joke about the socks! I always buy my granddaughter's funky socks every year because they love them. Socks are a good thing!!!!
