Christmas SMILE #4 (Reason to SMILE #338): THE CLOTHES

Of all the holidays, Christmas has to be the one with the largest clothing line. (I’m pretty sure the sale of this yuletide apparel is how Santa funds his “little” toy-making endeavor! 😉 ) And if you’re in the market for festive fashion, there are plenty of options to choose from:

Rudolph T-Shirts,

Santa Hats,

Candy Cane striped leggings,

Elf Pajamas.

Men’s Wrapping Paper Suits (at least that’s what they look like to me!),

“Jesus is the Reason for the Season” Neckties,

Jingle Bell Scarves,

Blinking Christmas Light Necklaces and

Ugly Christmas Sweaters.

If you think about it, we probably all know at least one person who seems to own every piece of Christmas-themed clothing or accessory known to mankind! From the moment the holiday season begins, there isn’t a day when these folks aren’t clad in something that screams, “I’m a Christmas lover!” But somebody’s gotta pay for all of those toys being delivered to millions of kids all over the world, right? 😉

Sadly, I’m not a big contributor to Santa’s toy-making fund. I own very few items of Christmas clothing. I’m too practical to spend money on clothing I can’t wear all year ’round! But I have to admit that I do own many pairs of Christmas socks. I love them. They’re cute. They keep my tootsies warm and they make me SMILE.

And this year, instead of an Ornament Swap, I convinced the ladies at church to do a Christmas Socks Swap. (Betcha didn’t know I had such persuasive powers, did ya! Hehe!) Everyone is asked to bring a pair of Christmas socks stuffed with goodies to exchange. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? As far as I’m concerned, though, they can skip the goodies. A festive pair of Christmas socks is all I need to find a SMILE!
