The importance of the Christmas jumper


Why wear a questionable knitted reindeer  knitted sweater? 

Simple: it’s comfortable, warm, snug, almost always of vintage taste and look like it’s straight out of 1940s Christmas, depicting reindeers or snowflakes and is generally large so you can eat as much pudding as your heart desires without worries since your belly will be camouflaged, but above all once a year it’s legitimate to walk around wearing reindeer jumpers of dubious taste while singing Let it Snow and would you really turn that down?  

Once any self-respecting young adult would have been horrified to open their wrapping paper and find they had been gifted such a garment. But today we can stand united, as we have on our side two excellent British women advocate of Christmas jumpers: Molly Weasley and Bridget Jones

Mark: I don’t think you’re an idiot at all. I mean, there are elements that are ridiculous about you. Your mother’s pretty interesting. And you really are an appallingly bad public speaker. And, um, you tend to let whatever’s in your head come out of your mouth without much consideration of the consequences. I realize that when I met you at the Turkey Curry Buffet I was unforgiveably rude… and wearing a reindeer jumper… that my mother had given me the day before. But the thing is, uhm, what I’m trying to say, very inarticulately, is that, uhm, in fact, perhaps despite appearances, I like you. Very much.
