This transformation has caused most people to forget the thrill of being in the kitchen and all the wonderful experiences that come with it.

A heartfelt viral post made by ‘Santa's Closet,’ on Facebook, has served as a reminder of the exhilaration that comes with being in the kitchen, and the topic of discussion was the apron and its multiple uses.

The post described the use of an apron as, including but not limited to, a costume worn over one's initial clothing while in the kitchen to protect it from spills.

It explained that grandmas scarcely had outfits so it wouldn't be easy to replace clothes if they got damaged.

It also revealed that the apron, made of linen, cotton, canvas, muslin, and other materials, was worn over the initial clothing because it was easier to wash, and it was used for holding hot pans in the absence of gloves.

There is an even more emotional impact of aprons.

In the post, we learned that the apron was used to dry the tears of children that happened to be crying while grandma was cooking in the kitchen.

One adorable use of aprons is that shy children also hid their faces under it when visitors came around.

Furthermore, another adopted way of using the apron was as a flag because grandmas waved it from the porch at the men on the field to signal them that their food was served.

Grandmothers devised several clever ways to use an apron that blew our minds as kids.

The post was concluded by remembering how an apron can only be associated with love: The love of a mother or grandmother.

It is exciting to recall some wonderful memories from your childhood. Hopefully, the tradition can be continued so that such memories can be experienced for real by our descendents.
