The cardigan with elbow patches – You are everyone’s favorite bookworm. The ABC Family tradition of dedicating an entire weekend of December to Harry Potter may not make sense to the rest of us, but to you it’s a dream. While everyone is dying to finish the semester and go home, you really don’t mind the last couple of weeks of academic pursuits. Your Christmas break will most likely be spent catching up on all of that run reading you’ve been wanting to do all semester.
Fair Isle Christmas Sweater – Ah, you are that festive friend we all know and love. For you, Christmas is not a holiday, but instead a state of mind. There are never enough Christmas lights, movies, parties, music, or decorations. You have always been on Santa’s nice list, because you are practically an elf. Christmas music started playing in October, and Christmas movies were on a week before Thanksgiving. You honestly don’t understand why anyone would not want to start spreading Christmas cheer early, because the season only comes around once a year.
Cabled Classic – You are moderate. You have gone to great lengths to mark your territory in the middle ground. You like things that make sense, but you also don’t want to overthink things. Life is complicated enough, so you do your best to go with the flow and enjoy the ride. Tradition is nice. You like sensible shoes, dressing appropriately for the weather, and arriving on time if not early.
The Hoodie – Like any good pair of sweats, you provide comfort, ease, and a healthy dose of laziness. Between the end of the semester and all of the fuss over Christmas you just want to crawl into a hole and hibernate until after winter is over. Until then, you will do your best to make it through the holidays, see Anchorman, and paste on a smile.
