Oh no! Got to have my bed-socks on, and feet under duvet too. Sometimes even in summer!

My aunt -who died many years ago-always slept with one foot not covered by the sheet or blanket. I always thought that was weird, but I guess she knew something I didn’t!!!

I take off socks in winter and keep my feet uncovered, the only way I can fall asleep.

Been doing it for years -- my mother did the same -- too hot? Give the blanket a kick :)
