The “Ugly Sweater” revolution is here, with Christmas jumpers being the “thing” to wear, especially at holiday parties, to bring the laughs!', '
One thing we all dread at Christmas time is opening a gift to find an ugly jumper, then smiling and thanking your family member, only for it to be stored away in the deepest, darkest corners of your wardrobe, never to be seen again.
But fear not! The “Ugly Sweater” revolution is here, with Christmas jumpers being the “thing” to wear, especially at holiday parties, to bring the laughs!
Sweaters have been a worn garment since the 19th century, being knitted (and often itchy) to obviously stay warm during these cold months. It wasn’t until later in the 20th century that decorated jumpers became a popular thing thanks to television.
Although we know jumpers now to be as bright as possible, sometimes with quotes from our favourite Christmas films such as “Merry Christmas ya filthy animal” (A classic from Home Alone!), there are also more traditional looks, like here as worn by Clark Griswold and Cousin Eddie in the Christmas fill National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation, although Clark was getting stick for his choice of sweaters!
It has become such a running joke, that many people hold “Ugly Sweater Day” as a party or even as a fun day in the office. There is often a contest to see who can pull off the oddest one of them all, like in Bridget Jones’ Diary seen here
Christmas jumpers have really evolved throughout the years. Some light up and even play music! There are even jumpers that come with an app so you can place it in a pocket to make it look like a burning fire in a fireplace
