Why We Take Off Our Shoes

remove your shoes

Do you take off your shoes before entering your home?  Do you ask others to?  Do you ever feel awkward asking them?

We take our shoes off before entering our home.  In our old home, we took them off in the garage and left them there.  In our new home, we have a mudroom that serves the same purpose, but is a tad more organized and warmer in the cooler months.

Why it might be a good idea to not bring your shoes in the house

So, what do you think?
