Old socks to adorn Christmas tree

Published: 13th December 2010

Festive decorators are planning to adorn Christmas trees with unusual items at a seasonal festival in Dartington, South Devon this year.

Old socks are to be used as a Christmas tree decoration along with other out-of-the-ordinary festive ornaments, to highlight Dartington's work in the arts, social justice and sustainability.

Dartington's first Christmas Tree Festival will feature twelve trees, each decorated by a local community group.

Bob Greig of Only Dads told the People's Republic of South Devon: "We are decorating our tree with socks – they're the sort of thing everyone has odd ones of at home and we'll be giving them a new lease of life.

"We've been asking parents and children to decorate old socks or make new ones and the children will be putting messages inside their socks."

By using old socks as Christmas decorations, the group will no doubt be hoping to receive some new men's Christmas socks this season.
