Christmas is probably the craziest time of the year: suddenly it's perfectly legitimate to eat as many sweets in one day as you do all year round. You search through your bulky waste for potential gifts for unloved relatives and think about what to do this year with the ugly pair of socks that grandma gives you for presents like every year. Well, whatever the case, a "special" time like Christmas calls for an equally special wardrobe. That's why you'll find plenty of Ugly Christmas Sweaters in our range to get you ready for the holidays.

Clearly, you could just wear the same thing on Christmas Day as you do every day. But if you ever have the chance to put on a Metal Christmas Sweater with kitschy knit patterns and fun Christmas motifs, you should take it.

Ugly Christmas jumpers - that's why they're so popular
Since "Bridget Jones - Chocolate for Breakfast" at the latest, many know how likeable it can look if you appear at a Christmas party wearing ugly Christmas jumpers. Behind the various motifs is usually a mix of "Look what I'm passionate about!" and a healthy dose of self-irony. When both come together, fashion is really fun for many!
Perhaps ugly Christmas jumpers are also so popular because they seem so direct in their flashiness and self-confident designs. The time of small patterns was - at least in terms of Christmas tops - yesterday.
Here, it's definitely not a case of spilling the beans, but of making a splash as you meet up with the family under the Christmas tree to sing "Jingle Bells".
Where does the tradition of the Christmas jumper come from?
Many people assume that the success story of the ugly Christmas jumper can be located in Great Britain. Because: this is where it was first shown on TV in the 1980s. Even then it was clear that the presenters who wore this garment did not take themselves too seriously and loved to play with the eye-catching garment in this way.
This quickly developed into a trend that - as seen in the previous Bridget Jones example - even made it into the cinema. Germany and many other countries could not escape the magic of the Christmas jumper. In the meantime, the garment even had its own day dedicated to it, just before Christmas. When would be a better opportunity to wear the garment than exactly then?
What types of Christmas jumpers are there?
Meanwhile, there are fun, cool, family and many more types of Christmas jumpers. Whether in large sizes, especially for men, with cute, kitschy or with scary motifs: with us you will find your ugly Christmas jumper or jumper, which you can easily buy online!
So take a little time to explore our selection! Our range is a great way to ensure that you don't have to worry about your 'perfect' wardrobe over the holidays.
Metal Christmas Sweater for music - and entertainment fans
At EMP you'll find not only the usual Ugly Christmas Sweaters with funny Christmas motifs and iconic knitting patterns, but also jumpers with motifs from your favourite bands, series, games and films.
Are you a big heavy metal fan and don't want to miss out on shocking your family a bit at Christmas? Then you shouldn't miss out on the Christmas jumpers by AC/DC, Five Finger Death Punch, Metallica and Slipknot. A few skulls here, a pentagram there, if these aren't great motifs to mix up the boring family celebration a bit.
If, however, you are one of those people who would rather have a lightsaber or the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse for Christmas than chocolate, you will certainly be thrilled by the X-Mas jumpers with series and film motifs. The Christmas jumpers from Game Of Thrones, Star Wars, Harry Potter, The Walking Dead or Disney are the perfect Christmas wardrobe for Jedi, budding Hogwarts students and members of the Night's Watch. May the Force be with your Ugly Christmas Sweater and give you strength to not fall asleep at Christmas Mass for once.
For all those who like to stick to the origins of festive jumpers, we of course also have plenty of Christmas jumpers in typical American style with funny motifs in stock. The Christmas jumpers with colourful patterns and daring colour combinations look almost exactly like the first X-Mas jumpers, which, by the way, were invented in the USA in the 80s.
Of course, the Ugly Sweaters are extremely popular not only because of their motifs, but also because they are cosy and warm. Whether in the office, relaxing on the couch or drinking mulled wine at the Christmas market, the cosiness factor is particularly high with an X-Mas jumper.
What's more, you can of course wear the Christmas jumper outside the holidays, supermarkets also start selling biscuits and gingerbread at the beginning of September.
By the way: if you're still looking for a gift for family, friends and co. and are one of the lucky ones who haven't already spent their entire Christmas budget on mulled wine - Ugly Christmas Sweaters are also a great gift idea.
In this spirit: Heavy X-Mas, rock the holidays and always stay well-behaved!
