A MAN has argued that his grey jumper counts as a Christmas jumper because that is what Christmas feels like.
48-year-old Norman Steele’s jumper, bought from a shop that also sells tools and work clothing, was deliberately chosen as his heartfelt response to the festive season.
He continued: “It is the grey of an EastEnders Christmas Day special in which a terrible crime is committed and three marriages break down.
“It is the grey of turkey legs still uneaten in the fridge after three days because it is one of the less pleasant meats but we insist on building a day around it.
“In its terrible, resplendent grey, this jumper is the most Christmassy of all.”
Co-worker Susan Traherne said: “My jumper has lights on and plays a joyful tune.
“I thought that was Christmassy, because I always forget what it’s really like.”
