And finally… Are we going Christmas crackers?

Christmas Jumper Day is just around the corner – this Friday (15th Dec) to be exact. No doubt, you and your colleagues will be heading into work with weird and wonderful Christmas-inspired jumpers; if you’re not involved, you’ll no doubt spot some jumpers on your commute, and see pictures on Instagram and Facebook too. You can’t escape it!

It’s customary not to take it too seriously and have a bit of fun. But has the Christmas Jumper tradition gone too far this year? Have jumper manufacturers gone a bit Christmas crackers?

It didn’t take us long to unearth some truly puzzling Christmas Jumpers:

  • Donald Trump themed jumper?Because it’s available at Zazzle. Even the site knows it’s not pretty and have put it in the ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ section
  • Double trouble jumper?Available on ASOS, you could be attached to your colleague all day. You just may want to re-think toilet breaks
  • Easy way to reach some wine?On the very aptly named Cheesy Christmas Jumpers site, you could buy this jumper and be within arm’s reach of a swift slurp of wine
  • Avocado on toast…sorry, I meant jumper?Ok, so avocado is a big thing these days, but do we really need it on a Christmas jumper with a terrible play on words? Well, Notonthehighstreet thinks we do
  • Dinosaur themed jumper?We love dinosaurs and we love Christmas, but together? We’re not sold. But if you’re a fan, head to Amazon 

What a whirlwind tour of some bizarre corners of the web! On a serious note, whatever jumper you choose, just be sure you’re having fun and you’re supporting Save the Children. Add a cheeky mince pie and some mulled wine and you’ll take the edge off the most eye-watering jumpers.
