Social Musings 101

People who have contributed to society……..

In this post of people who have given or contributed to society we are going to talk about socks.  So socks have been around for a really long time. The oldest pair of found socks was located at Oxyrhynchus in Egypt, they date back to 300-500 A.D. So since sockss were created so long ago not one person is really attributed to building the beauties. But can you imagine Life without socks. No socks. Man sweaty feet……smelly feet….or always having to change the cloth around your shoes. Especially in winter time…socks come in handy so much. If you have ever worked a job where you have to stand for long periods of time then you understand. As you can wear multiple pairs of socks that act as a cushion to your heel and foot. So thank you to all the people over the centuries who have contributed to the sock and perfected the sock and made it what it is……….Thanks again…..to read more about the history of the sock.
