So is it just me? Am I the only person who really cannot see the point of the latest fad of Christmas jumpers everywhere?? There are loads of lovely jumpers out there to keep you warm and don't get me wrong these I am sure will also do equally well however they do have a limited 'wearable life' and some of them in my humble opinion are really crass! Is it just me? Is it a case of bah humbug? What do you think??
Lets have your views on this....maybe I am really just not in the right frame of mind for christmas.....

Think we have to blame Bridget Jones! Apparently you can get a free mincepie on Fridays in Costa coffee if you are wearing a Christmas jumper!

Oh really?? Didn't know that....hhmmm, the mince pie could be appealing but I would have to be desperate if I needed to be in a christmas jumper to receive one! lol I think I will stick with just buying a mince pie thanks :-)

Anyone else have a view on this? More to the point have YOU got a christmas jumper? (Or if you have, will you admit it?)

No. Don't really get the Christmas jumper thing. When did it all start. Don't remember it being a thing in the past unless it was a mum/granny thing making one for a small child

I agree I have no idea when it started....I do kinda recall my mum knitting my a Xmas jumper when I was little which I hated as I was the only one with one...didnt like standing out at that time!!
