Who's wearing Christmas sweaters?

I got my Christmas sweaters out of the spare closet yesterday and I plan to wear one today.  Am I the only one here who wears holiday sweaters and shirts?  I certainly hope not.

@tototwo,

I wear holiday clothes also!

I have a red cashmere sweater that gets a lot of wear around the holidays, but that's it.

I don't think I could wear one if you paid me. It's just not my style. I did get out the cashmere, though.

 

Enjoy your sweaters, @tototwo!

I don’t own a Christmas sweater; DH can’t stand them. I think they’re fun and so cute! I love seeing people wearing their Xmas sweaters.

I noticed Kohls had a large selection of them.

If you enjoy those sweaters, wear them please.  Celebrate how you want.  There will always be those who are the opposite:  why give them any power over your choices ?

 

If you get compliments, then they are in good taste.

 

I have two soft cotton long sleeve pullover shirts: cobalt one has a large gift bow in tiny hobnails; the black one, a reindeer in flight.  They give me pleasure and folks smile when I wear them.  That is all that matters.

I have a couple but they are simple. They aren’t sweaters, just tee shirts. I would roast in a sweater. I have one from Kohl’s that has a simple tree with a kitty standing on its hind legs playing with the ornaments.

Re: Who's wearing Christmas sweaters?

Before retiring, I wore something Christmasy every day of December.  I have so many sweaters, sweatshirts, tees, vests, etc.  and even some with lights!  Now I hardly wear them since I don't go out much.  I do usually wear the tees daily though.  They are so much fun and I love to see them worn.  There are more and more men wearing them now and that is great.   For those that wouldn't be caught dead in one - well don't take yourself so seriously - you don't know what you're missing. At least wear a Christmas themed button or pin to join in the fun!  We had several women who made it known that they were too classy for that but one year we had a Christmas outfit contest and the winners got a parking spaces under the building for a week and had different categories they could win in and these snobs all participated and every one of them had so much fun they started wearing Christmas sweaters, etc every year!

Re: Who's wearing Christmas sweaters?

I do not have any I only wear Christmas socks along with other holiday socks.  I just have always hated investing $$ in clothing for a limited period of time.  Some are very pretty though that I have passed by.
