Why do so many people ask for and get slippers for Christmas? Both my husband and son asked for slippers this year - that is a first. Neither of them have ever worn them before. My daughter Ali, on the other hand, has always liked slippers. She has a pair like these Minnetonka Sheepskin Mule Slippers (available at Shoebuy.com, $59.95), but not only wears them in the house, but as regular shoes, too. As for me, I personally I do not own a pair, nor do I want any. One thing about it, finding slippers during the holidays seems to be easy as every store has them for sale.
