At the mere sniff of tinsel, we appear to lose our tiny minds when it comes to choosing a sweater to wear. Oh yes, I am talking about the unwritten tradition of wearing really bad Christmas sweater. An undercover cult fashion trend for years, this was brought to the mainstream through Bridget Jones and, of course, Mrs. Weasley’s traditional jumpers from the ‘Harry Potter’ series.
There really is an art form to this, and the more hideous these jumpers are, the better. There is even a UK website that sells bad jumpers like your granny used to make.
I have to say, I love the idea of blatantly wearing a hideously designed article. I’ll have my eyes peeled today trying to find a suitable partner in crime--of the knitted variety--to see me through the festive season.
