Christmas Sweater Day Enjoyed Everyday by Mom and Her Kids

Meet the family that has enough Christmas sweaters to last a month. (Respond)

A mum is making Christmas Sweater Day every day in her house as she dresses her children in a different holiday-themed outfit throughout December.

Katy Warburton, 36, mum-of-two, has bought more than 240 Christmas outfits for her little ones over the past seven years, making the countdown to each year’s big day one to remember.

Warburton, from Wolverhampton, West Midlands, started the annual tradition in 2016 to mark the very first Christmas of her son James, now six, who his little sister Charlotte, three, is now also enjoying.

Warburton also invites them to strut in a daily festive “parade” to show off their impressive collection of seasonal sweaters. The family also has dozens of matching Christmas pajama sets.

But while Warburton goes all out, she tries to do it in the most resourceful way possible.

“I usually never pay more than £1 for a festive jumper, shirt or dress,” she says.

“I’m shocked at the price of Christmas-themed clothing in stores. I love to search charity shops and car shoe sales during the summer months for nearly new bargains.

“Every item I buy is from a garage sale or charity shop. They only wear them for the day, then either I save the bigger ones for Charlotte to wear in years to come, or I give them to friends or I resell them.”

The idea came about involuntarily while she was expecting her first child with husband Nathan Warburton, 32.

“James was due in late November, so I spent the summer looking for festive clothes ready for his first Christmas,” Warburton recalled.

“Loved finding baby bargains for less than a pound. I took them home, washed them and put them away ready for her arrival.”

Although, she admits, “I forgot how many Christmas-themed babies I had bought.

“I couldn’t help it, the little newborn outfits were just too cute.

“The vests saying ‘Mummy’s Little Christmas Pudding’ or ‘Santa’s Little Helper’, they were all adorable.”

The first year, she bought a lot more than expected.

“I realized I got a little carried away when my husband joked that James could wear a different one every day in December,” she confesses.

Last year, Warburton feared his favorite tradition would end when James started school. But still resourceful, she bought more matching pajamas so it could continue into the evening, while being careful how much she spends.

‘Kids love it and I get so excited when I take home a flashing 50p jumper or a £1 red velvet dress still with the tags on,’ she says.

“I show my husband when I get a good deal, but I wait until December to surprise the kids with the outfits they have to choose.”

And kids also love to get involved in outfits.

“They pick the ones they like to wear each day, especially if we’re going to a Christmas party or nursery, and I love taking pictures and sharing them with my family,” Warburton says.

“As James got older, the styles changed from cute ‘mummy’s little snowman’ to Santa sweaters with a gamepad, or Minecraft characters wearing Santa hats.

“But Charlotte’s dresses are so pretty that I couldn’t choose one or two. I love her December wardrobe.”

Warburton has no plans to stop its festive tradition anytime soon.

“It’s such a magical time of year at this age!” she adds.

“They’re both so excited for Christmas and it helps build excitement for them.

“I get photos to treasure once they decide they’re too old to dress up.”
