In Aus,Christmas typically means backyard cricket, ho-ho-hoeing into some BBQ prawns, and sweaty Uncle Dazza dressed as barefoot Santa. But that doesn’t mean we miss out on a winter Christmas. We also have Christmas in July and we have it with the works – toasty fire, cosy festive garb and a decadent yuletide feed surrounded by our nearest and dearest. At our ski resorts, some Aussies even have it white.
And yes, we have awkward Chrissy jumpers. So this year, KFC has dropped limited-editionChristmas in July Jumpers for Aussies AND their four-legged besties.
“First released for humans in 2021, KFC fans sleigh-ed in these iconic knits.” (Note the quote marks. This is KFC’s pun., not The Stable’s). “But, because we know that our pets are part of the family, we knew something was missing: a matching Christmas in July Jumper for your numero uno floof. So, this July, ‘tis the seasonfor these sweaters to make a highly anticipated comeback. Only this time, Fido or Simba will also be snug as a pug in a rug in their very own KFC Christmas in July Jumper.”
Could anything be more perfect for capturing the most awkward Chrissy family photos?
The collection of AussieChristmas in July sweaters is available on the KFC Shopify page. There’s only a limited number, Aussies – $59.95 for you and $34.95 for fur babies (plus the postie fees).
And, because Christmas is all about giving, KFC will be donating all profits from the jumpers to its charity partners, The Black Dog Institute, ReachOut Australia, and Whitelion. Aussies can even feel they’re giving joy to the world.
Sally Spriggs, chief marketin officer at KFC Australia, stated, “Christmas in December doesn’t always measure up to the hype we hope for, so KFC’s got you covered this year with the perfect Christmas in July celebration. We’re treating fans with food, outfits and tunes to embrace the festive cheer with the family you choose for a fun-filled celebration without being wedded to the traditions of a typical Christmas.”
To go with your Chrissy in July sweater, KFC has also created a special Christmas in July Feast (available Tuesday July 12 to Monday August 8) plus
Santa the Colonel is throwing in free delivery when you order it via the KFC App. And for perfect Chrissy in July “gift wrapping”, KFC has put together a Festive Bangers Spotify playlist full of tracks “that will have you and Uncle Dazza (or whoever yours might be) rocking around the Christmas tree.
