Little story of the Christmas sweater
The tradition of sweater "ugly" or Christmas sweater, is today, become ultra trend. Each year, this phenomenon takes hold a little more in France, where we celebrate the International Christmas Sweater Day at the office, in the evening or at home with friends (e-) s. Last November, a festival is even organized in Albi. The event brought together more than 600 participants, all dressed in their best ugly pullovers. However, in the beginning this piece was not trendy since the tradition comes from England where it was common, even obligatory, to offer, as a family, knitted sweaters with the effigy of the holidays.
Later, in the 80s, these knits are making their comeback. They are manufactured in the factory, in series, based on motives all more kitsch than each other, and still scratch as much. In the 2000s, several major cities, in the United States or Canada, set up days in honor of these sweaters. But it is mainly thanks to a famous film heroine that he gets his share of worship. You'll recognize it, it's Bridget Jones. Impossible to forget this scene where the thirty meets Marc Darcy, dressed in a reindeer head sweater of very (very) good taste. Good, good news, even with this horribly ugly knit, love still triumphed.
