Save The Children’s Annual Christmas Jumper Day
Picture this Christmas scene: snow is falling outside while indoors there’s an open fire and twinkling lights on a Christmas tree. Stacked underneath are presents and gifts just waiting to be opened, traditional music is playing. Then of course there’s the knitwear that everyone is wearing, you know the embarrassing jumper you are forced to pull out every year.
As embarrassing as it may have been to wear them in the past, these days a lot of people wear their Christmas jumpers with pride to show how much they love Christmas! Seeing Christmas jumpers in the shops is as sign Christmas is coming in the same way the Coco Cola advert and the Starbucks red cup make people feel Christmassy!
Their motto is “wear a woolly Christmas jumper and donate £2” and since the first Christmas Jumper day in 2012 they have raised more than £1.6 million. Find out more about how you can donate here and if you’re stuck for a jumper to wear on the 12th, here are some of our picks!
Christmas Jumpers for Bah! Humbug! Scrooges

If going subtle isn’t your thing and you are willing to go all out – after all why shouldn’t you? Pick a bold, loud Christmas jumper and if you can find one, a design with twinkling lights!
This nifty little jumper has a slot for your smartphone to give the illusion that the santa on your jumper is moving!
