Celebrate in style with these delightfully over-the-top holiday jumper options.

Here in Australia, Christmas isn't quite the way it appears in Hallmark movies.

Instead of winter wonderlands and frosty snowmen, Aussies often celebrate with scorching heat and a classic family barbecue.

If you've ever wondered what you're missing out on though, Christmas in July is the perfect time to find out.

The second Christmas celebration centres around Christmas-themed activities and traditions that Australians often miss, including the wearing of tacky Christmas jumpers.

Whether you're headed to a Christmas in July party or are entertaining the family in lockdown, we've rounded up our favourite ugly sweaters for all ages below so you can try the bizarre tradition for yourself.
