Even the mail needs a little help keeping warm this winter.

Maybe that’s the goal of someone who has carefully placed crocheted booties on the front legs of a pair of blue collection boxes in Woodbury, MN.

The boxes are outside city hall and a bagel shop. The unique footwear, fastened with bows in the back, draws plenty of double takes and smiles from passersby.

In December, the booties had a Christmas theme. The red February booties were decorated with hearts.
