Christmas Jumper Day

Never known to miss an opportunity for looking a little bit silly, I'll be wearing my rockin' robin sweater today for Save the Children's 'Christmas Jumper Day'.

I don't work on Fridays, so wearing it won't have quite the same impact as if it was worn by a managing director giving someone the sack, a novice surgeon preparing for the first cut, or anyone who drives a hearse.

But it may raise a smile at the doctor's and greengrocer's.

You can support it by wearing your cheesiest knitwear and / or texting 'WOOLLY' to 70050.

There are some great examples of famous figures rendered woollier on Gumtree's blog like Batman here

...Although I have a terrible confession - mine came from Primark, and so was almost certainly made in a sweatshop by children in the third world - exactly the sort of kids the charity is trying to save.

I hereby swear that I will not buy from this store ever again.

  3. This made me laugh. Can you imagine, if a surgeon turned up to do your hernia dressed in a Santa sweater?! Funny!

  5. On the special occasion of Christmas everyone wants to be dressed differently. Great christmas collection shown for both men and women. Funky designs are very popular teens and now all age groups are also started liking these funky christmas jumpers designs. Combination of favorite cartoon characters and christmas symbols make the dress very special.
