Back in 2011 a Danish female detective named Sarah Lund made her UK television debut in a TV crime drama named The Killing. Although her intuitive and determined manner made this unmissable television, the most iconic aspect of the show was Sarah’s fetching jumper. Hailing from the Faroe Islands, the seasonal woolen jumper quickly became the star of the show with many replicas being produced.
Now four years on, the Nordic jumper trend has fully caught on and (to an extent) transformed into Christmas Jumper Day. The event which takes place on December 12th, is a fun money raising event run by the Save The Children charity. Participants are encouraged to make a donation of just £2 (£1 for children) in order to wear their most garish or stylish of Christmas Jumpers. The money raised could pay antibiotic’s that could save the lives of ill children and babies all around the world.
So this Friday why not get in the festive spirit and more importantly make a difference to someone else’s life by wearing your best Christmas garb. It would make Sarah Lund proud!
