If you don't own a Christmas jumper, I have a few questions for you. One: why? Two: why? And three: why? Not only are festive designs super cosy, but they also provide you with your one and only chance to wear something truly strange to work. So whether you're a diehard fan of a certain TV series or want to show your love for Greggs' vegan sausage roll, here are the most ridiculous Christmas jumpers of 2019.
Some people are forced into wearing cringe-worthy jumpers for workplace festivities; others simply revel in the looks on people's faces when they wear a particularly outlandish knit.

True Star Wars fanatic? How about a Harry Potter devotee? There's a Christmas jumper for you.
