South African Christmases are usually a little different to celebrations elsewhere. They do normally involve eating an excessive amount of food and seeing family. Christmas lights aren’t really a big thing here, we don’t have huge Christmas trees popping up in public, or snow to make the whole thing feel real or ugly Christmas sweaters on account of it being hot as hell.
But our Christmases do usually involve having a braai and a swim and enjoying the warm weather and well-deserved downtime.
Our festive season socks are the perfect choice to show off your cheer. Stylish and eye-catching, they’re the perfect solution for the sweater/warm weather conundrum.
