Defnitely a climate thing which has been suprisingly hotly debated here amongst the North Americans on the board. Those of us from the northern climates tend to do it automatically while some people from warmer climates think that expecting your guests to do so is rude. It has nothing to do with cultural heritage and everything to do with the mess that a pair of shows can make in the winter time.
