To think it's OK to wear a Xmas jumper in September?

Not me grin but 10 year old DD.

She has been given a bag of hand me downs which included a Christmas jumper. She LOOVES it and has put it on every day after school.

DH says fair enough round the house but not out and about (we have a rule no dressing-up clothes outside the house) as it isn't even close to Christmas yet.

I think warm jumper, why shouldn't she wear it, it's not the same as dressing up (though admittedly it is v Christmassy).

Who is BU?

I'd think it's up to her.

Ds1 regularly wears his purple reindeer t-shirt so I say it's fine.

My vote is with DH. YABU. Keep. Christmas for December.

I'd let mine. But I live Christmas so might be a bit biased

My DD (7) is wearing hers right now!

You. You're bonkers. Thank god for your DH! It's FAR too early for Christmas Jumpers.

At 10, absolutely. At 45, never!

Oops live is meant to be love. But I live Xmas kind of makes sense too. smile

I had a Christmassy jumper as an adult, I wore it throughout the cooler days because I liked it. If it is going to be a 'special jumper' for dressing up or just for Christmas it won't get much use which is a shame if it is a favourite so I would let her wear it, or compromise and make it indoors only until Christmas.

Thanks for reminding me. I need to get my son's one out. Not only will definitely not fit him by Christmas, it's a girls jumper, but he loves it sooo much.

At ten, no problem. But I wouldn't have a problem with dressing up clothes either.

Dressing up rule was mainly for safety/practicality reasons - which obviously don't apply to jumpers anyway!

More votes for wearing it so far - may smugly show DH this thread later.

Let her enjoy wearing it and tell Scrooge DH to chill.

I don't think there is anything wrong with wearing the jumper, as such, but I wouldn't have let my own DD wear it.
