Funny Christmas jumpers

You’d be forgiven for thinking that ugly and funny Christmas jumpers are one and the same thing – but searches for each actually reveal quite different results. Of course there are some crossovers, but funny Christmas jumpers available in Australia may feature amusing slogans or humorous images rather relying on pure ugliness.

Slogan Christmas jumpers include ‘I only do mornings on December 25th’, ‘Weiner Wonderland’, ‘Twas the nizzle before Chrismizzle’, ‘Life of the party’ and ‘I’m the nice one’. Most of these are knitted, and some features a nordic style trim as well as the main design.

You can also add a movie theme by opting for the likes of a Batman, Marvel, Superman, Gremlins or Star Wars Christmas jumper. Or go for one with Santa wearing a cardigan – open at the front to reveal his toned bare chest and washboard stomach. There is also a similar option featuring a Santa who perhaps hasn’t been to the gym lately.

If you want to raise a chuckle, it’s easy to find a funny Christmas jumper to inject some humour into your home or workplace.

Men don’t get to have all the fun, of course. Outrageous Christmas jumpers for women feature slogans like ‘I put out for Santa’, a couple of strategically placed Christmas puddings in the chest region and even a ‘Jingle Bell End’ t-shirt with an arrow pointing sideways.
