We love our grandmas with all our hearts, but they can be a bit old-fashioned and prejudiced, not to say, prudes. Things were different when they were young, social interactions and social conventions were different, and sometimes it’s hard for them to accept the way we do these things today.
When this grandma heard her granddaughter was moving in with her boyfriend – before marriage – she was shocked. As a Christmas present, she gave her this nightgown. It’s a subtle hint, but we get the message – she disapproves of this living arrangement. Nevertheless, she didn’t want to meddle in her granddaughter’s business, so she gave her this nightgown to let her know where she stands.
