The Latest Christmas Jumpers
Christmas Jumpers are now very much part of the run-up to Christmas. Lots of schools celebrate Save The Children’s Christmas Jumper Day. In my experience, you need to get these early. I’ve been to the shops with my children to buy a Christmas Jumper and found nothing in their size. Of course, like all seasonal things, the best choice is online. Here are some of our favourites this year. All links go to Amazon [disclosure].

The Christmas Jumper Tradition
According to Wikipedia (sourced 6/10/17) jumpers for Christmas became popular in the UK during the 1980s after a variety of television presenters began wearing them during the Christmas holidays. In particular, their popularity may be attributed to the influence of singers such as Andy Williams and Val Doonican who appeared in these type of jumpers in their television Christmas specials.
They are often seen as a hand-made present knitted by an elderly relative that are given as a Christmas present. During the 1990s and 2000s they were seen as comedy gifts and fell out of favour. Remember poor Colin Firth as Darcy in the 2001 film Bridget Jones’ Diary…? But they are now firmly on-trend.
