  1. There aren’t enough words to describe how much I love these. I have had 1 for the past 4 years, a pullover … it’s a Christmas tree and lights up! I’ve been wearing it only on Christmas Day, Christmas shopping and of course for breakfast with Santa and the parade. .. well I spilled a bit of coffee on it and was going to wash it only to discover… its uncleanable 🙁 … sadly for me Urban Planet near me is closing but on the lucky side I snagged a cardigan for 40% off and it was the only one left! I’ve decided I’m worth a new Christmas sweater each year so .. new tradition!

  2. I have a huge love for the sweaters,it;s such fun to see everyone with their fun sweaters and I love the creative folks who make their own!

  3. Long ago back when I was in grade school, wearing these sweaters every year was the norm, and we couldn’t wait to see what the new style was going to be, and now 2018 they are a big hit, I had so many when I was in grade school, to bad I didn’t keep them I would have been rich!
