If you still haven’t got on board the Christmas Jumper train, what are you waiting for?

They’re the best!

But, we get it. Some people think they’re a bit tacky, a bit naff or worse, just a novelty and not something to be worn to anything worthwhile.

Well, we disagree on all those counts…although we will admit that it’s important to shop around for one that you really like!

Here are five reasons why everyone should have a Christmas Jumper:

1. It’s perfect for when you don’t know what to wear

Stuck for something to wear to your neighbour’s party? Throw on a Christmas jumper over a nice pair of jeans or even a skirt and you’re good to go.

People will think you’re great craic for getting into the spirit of things.

2. It’ll keep you warm

Let’s not underestimate the importance of this!

There are a lot of cold and flu bugs circulating at this time of year and the last thing we should be doing is freezing in flimsy tops or dresses that look great indoors but leave us shivering the second we step outside.

You’ll always be cosy in a Christmas jumper!

3. It hides a multitude!

Ross Geller called it ‘holiday weight’ and he wasn’t wrong. If you’ve put on a few festive pounds over the month of December, don’t stress out.

It’ll all come off in January and in the meantime, you can hide any extra lumps or bumps under your roomy Christmas jumper!

4. It can express your personality

Not all Christmas jumpers are cute and jolly, you know. If you fancy skipping the saccharine statements for a more Grinch-like approach, there are plenty of festive sweaters out there to accommodate your feelings.

And it’s a good way of finding like-minded people in the midst of all the merriment!

5. It’s a bit of fun!

It’s understandable that some people want to dress up and go all out for Christmas parties but at the end of the day, it’s all about having fun and being comfortable.

So, even if you get seriously glammed up for one event, attend at least one wearing your Christmas jumper. We guarantee you’ll have a great night!
