I wrote this post in December 2014, accompanied by photos of themed sweaters taken at Peacock. This was my first visit to Tenby. It’s the third time I’ve come back to it in December, In the meantime, the 2014 post (below) still seems relevant to me.
The BBC recently released a documentary about Tatler’s magazine, a monthly aimed at 150,000 subscribers (or aspiring to join) the British elite. The docu teaches us, among other things, that in these circles, one should not mourn the death of a loved one, but that it is fashionable to mourn the death of one’s dog. We will also accept the most outrageous behavior, provided we do not wear the wrong shade of blue on Tuesday. More recently, the magazine informed its subscribers that they could wear the « Christmas jumper », provided they wear it « ironically ». I also note a strong return of the said sweater in this corner of the country, but I must admit that I cannot distinguish those who wear it ironically from the others. As for me, when I have found the theme that I can identify with, I promise to wear my « Christmas jumper » poetically. Happy poetic New Year!
