As a longtime fan of Christmas, I find this time of year a bit hard to handle. It’s at least two months before we start hearing tinny renditions of Here Comes Santa Claus while frantically running around the shops preparing for (as Bridget Jones calls it) the annual Taste-Of-Others exam.
Thankfully, this is where Christmas in July comes in. A fun way to celebrate Christmas in the middle of the year without the usual chaos, it’s particularly special for us Southern Hemispherians who want to enjoy a more ‘authentic’ cold-weather Christmas. This means roast turkey, hot cocoa and… the best bit…. Ugly Christmas Jumpers (or sweaters, for those joining us from North America).
Here is a pictorial journey through our favourite Ugly Christmas Jumpers.
Any vest that allows you to carry at least five drinks at one time is a winner in my books.
From Russia with love.
