"Three little kittens they lost their mittens
And they began to cry,
Oh, mother dear, we sadly fear
Our mittens we have lost
What! Lost your mittens, you naughty kittens!
Then you shall have no pie."
- Folk nursery rhyme by Eliza Lee Cabot Follen, 1833

Mittens are a staple of both wintertime and childhood imagery. Mittens are a type of glove that group four of the fingers together in a single pocket, separating only the thumb in an individual sheath.

Mittens aren't just for children, however. The earliest known mittens discovered by archaeologists date to around 1,000 A.D. They hailed from Latvia, a small European country, and are still part of Latvia's "national costume" - a style of dress intended to express the cultural identity of the region.

Mittens are often seen in art and popular culture.

For example, you might glimpse mittens in hand in one of painter Norman Rockwell's winter scenes.

The popular Shopkins collectible toy line features two mitten-inspired characters, Hug 'n' Snug Mittens and Molly Mitten.

And what of those kittens who lost their mittens? Well, as the story goes, they found their mittens and even washed them to make their mother happy. And then they ate their pie. This nursery rhyme has been featured on Barney and Friends and many other children's television programs.
