    Deck the ties with boughs of holly,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.
    Tis' the season to be jolly,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.


    Don we now our holiday apparel,
    Troll the knit with the hanukkah candle,
    Fa la la la la, la la la la.


    Wear a holiday sweater, holiday tie, scarf, or other accoutrement. Feel free to go for the nordic, fairisle, etc...

    The challenge is to actually make it look good - i.e. NOT awful

    Open to casual/formal/MC/CM/SWD and more

    You can't win if you don't play, son. Pull on your Hebrew stockingfeet, and get in the game!

    x post from WAYWRN I get to wear this red jacket about 5 times a year. Once a week in December and on Valentine's Day. Happy holidays. Note the green pocket square and silk knots.

    You know, I was looking at a very similar knit in RL today, thinking it would be good for this challenge...[​IMG]

    They had some freaky snowflake & reindeer sweaters too, but I think even I lack sufficient irony for those. I'll see if I can do either a red/green combo or a fun tie look for the challenge at some point this week. Good entries so far!

    That might be the greatest WAYW pic I have seen posted on this forum. I don't even feel like entering anymore.
