The Christmas vest or waistcoat is top of the list, this very strange outfit does a wonderful job of keeping your core warm, but at this cold time of year you might be a bit more interested in keeping your arms warm to. Maybe its a financial issue and this chaps making a saving, we are a little doubtful though.
2. Dinner Jumper
Forget the dinner jacket, put on the dinner jumper, be careful at the Christmas dinner table with this one, you may be attacked or you will just look like a mirror and a floating head.
3. Unrelated Christmas Animals
Unrelated christmas animals, for this one we were going to show you some jumpers with things like pugs and cats on them wearing Christmas hats and such, but upon our search we came across animals wearing Christmas jumpers and this was excelled in comical value so heres some animals with the festive fever… well maybe its their owners who have the festive fever.
This one is very strange…
4. Christmas Suit
Snazzy! Not sure if Christmas suits are a new thing or old hat, my friend did don one for his works Christmas do so maybe they are gaining in popularity. Safe to say it was not a stylish choice, but then again neither are most Christmas jumpers. If this is for you it will set you back a whopping £59.95, hopefully it will make it out of the cupboard for next year, £30.00 per wear isn’t too bad.
5. Fire Jumper
So to start the list of here is a Christmas jumper with a hole in the middle. The idea of this jumper is that you stick your phone in the hole and it has a looped video with a fire. This little party trick will set you back £35.99, I would find it a little annoying, if you get a phone call then you are going to have to scramble around with your jumper and inevitably, you will drop your phone on the floor. Smashing!
In 1605 Guido Fawkes A.K.A Guy Fawkes was thwarted in his plans to destroy the houses of parliament and kill the Protestant King with 900kg of gunpowder. His reasoning for this desperate act, King James’ unfair treatment of the catholic people. After the danger had been cleared, King James encouraged the city of London to celebrate the safety of the King by lighting fires. In modern years we celebrate this date with beautiful firework displays around the country.
We are sure you will be attending a display near you but here are 5 of the most impressive firework displays held around the world to get you in the spirit.
