In recent years, the alcohol fuelled adventure known as “The Twelve Pubs of Christmas” has become an honoured tradition amongst Irishmen nationwide. Party-goers can be spotted from miles off meandering from pub to pub sporting tinsel, baubles and most importantly, their Christmas jumpers. Christmas jumpers you say? Let the flashbacks of embarrassing Christmas ensembles, designed and produced by none other than your fabulous Granny and her knitting needles begin.
Nowadays, Christmas jumpers have become a little more chic – or at least, well-fitted. I have searched the internet far and wide to find an original design – because lets face it, at least 12 other people in your group will be sporting the exact same jumper from Primark – and, I have finally found the perfect website. Let me introduce you to Funky Christmas Jumpers.
The Kim Kardashian.
This is my absolute favourite design but it is LIMITED EDITION, so if you want it, order it quickly. Kimmy K “broke the internet” earlier this year with this infamous naked pose for “Paper” magazine. So, this jumper is bound to be a crowd pleaser. Get ready for the selfies… This one is available here for €59.99. Perhaps a little pricey but, oh-so hilarious.
Wrecking Santa Jumper
Another celebrity spin-off, and this time Funky Christmas Jumpers have depicted scantily clad Santa Clause taking the place of Miley Cyrus on a wrecking ball. This one is available here for €39.99 and is sure to inspire a few chuckles, if not a sing-song or two.
Happy Birthday Jesus.
This tongue-in-cheek design was a best seller for Funky Christmas Jumpers last year. This wacky, yet wonderful jumper is a guaranteed head turner. But, I wouldn’t recommend wearing it to mass on Christmas morning. Available here for €39.99.
Naked Santa Christmas Jumper
If there’s a competition for the cheekiest Christmas jumper in your local pub, this one will be a winner. Available here for €39.99.
For these designs and many more, you can visit Funky Christmas Jumpers online.
Have you purchased your Christmas jumper yet or do you think that they’re old relics, best left in the past?
