December – National Sock Day

Post by Polaris Black » Sat Dec 02, 2017 6:23 am

Socks are important not only in our daily lives, but also in Harry Potter series which we all love. Lovers of socks celebrate National Sock Day on December 4th.

Did you know that the most socks sorted in one minute is 31 pairs, a record achieved by Silvia Sabba of Italy?

To celebrate this wonderful piece of clothing, important to people and house elves alike, take a picture of a sock or socks. It can be your favorite or least favorite pair of socks, a sock in an unusual position or place, an art installation, anything. Sky is the limit!

For 15 Hoots and 15 beans, post your photograph (600x600 or less) of something to do with socks as a reply to this thread by December 31st, 11:59 PM HOL time at the latest. All posted photos must be of your own creation and all normal HOL rules apply.

I never leave for (indoor) volleyball without a pair of fun socks. Good thing I have so many to choose from!

I knew keeping these socks would come in handy one day. The two on the right were actually from a dance thing way too many years ago, think middle school Shiloh. The two holiday socks on the left are probably from around the same time. Then I have a pair of jazz socks in the middle. They are actually very sparkly which is the only reason I've kept them. The socks on the top, the gray and blue, are simply cozy, and I like to wear them to warm up my feet.
