LONDON, December 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
With Christmas literally around the corner, one fashion statement the nation can't ignore this time of year is the dreaded Christmas jumper. Usually found on unsuspecting grandchildren or the office joker, 2012 has seen the comeback of the Christmas jumper in a big way, with major high street retailers stocking them right next to the onesies and lounge pants.
At one time, many were thought to loathe the Christmas jumper (who remembers the cringeworthy scene from Bridget Jones' Diary?); fast forward from 2001 and there's everything from flashing Christmas jumpers to fully antlered reindeer hoodies to keep everyone warm from mid-November.
Much like the return of vintage t-shirts featuring children's TV characters of decades gone by, the Christmas jumper fills everyone with a sense of tradition and nostalgia, reminding people of the most wonderful time of the year.
Above all else, festive jumpers keep everyone snug and warm during the winter months. Minus temperatures can be brightened up instantly by the face of Santa Claus or a classic Christmas pudding displayed as a fashion statement, plus they will help keep the heating bills down!
