Socks can do more than simply hang from the mantelpiece!
The toe sock feels so lonely: Who on earth is it going to celebrate Christmas with? Everyone else is so different. The slipper sock is far too slow, the knee sock is too tall, and the sneaker sock is rushing round the Christmas tree so fast that all the baubles are falling off. Then the sound of music wafts in from the living room. A small finger glove is playing Christmas carols on the piano. They sound even better with five toes playing the accompaniment!
