Today is Christmas Jumper Day.
Up and down the country, children will be heading into school and adults into work in their most festive woollen attire in aid of Save The Children.
And they usually have one thing in common. No, not the people, but the jumpers: they are usually hideous.
In recognition of this, on today’s Countdown to Christmas we have Rebecca Zamolo lamenting just how ugly the things are, in an oddly upbeat manner.
And me? I have a perfectly-timed day off work today. However, I will be sporting my usual Gills-themed jumper at the office Christmas meal this evening.
Well, someone has to, I suppose!
