I get so tickled at my granny and mama when they say this. Back years ago you just didn't go barefoot till May. Now one thing about my granny she keeps a warm house and since menopause it is summer for me alot. It has to be really cold for me to wear boots or shoes that confine the foot as I am a flip flop and sandal kinda girl. I do their hair every week and I know that even in the cold months to dress for hot weather so one of the first things to go is the shoes and I will hear "aren't you cold?" You are not suppose to go barefoot till at least May
I just just laugh and tell them I am fine.
