This year, Richard Branson is encouraging the world to wear and share their Christmas jumpers - especially if they're so bad they're good. During December, he has shared some of his past Christmas clothing through his blog and Tumblr page. Globally, all Virgin companies will be getting in the spirit and sharing photographs of their crazy knitwear.

This Friday is our turn at Virgin Balloon Flights and we’re looking for some of the most outrageous jumpers in town. It's not just the staff in our office joining in, our pilots and crew members will be jumping into their quirky knitwear and sending us snaps from all over the country. We’ll be sharing all our photos with you on our Facebook and Twitter page as well as the official Xmas Jumper tumblr page.

You too can all join in from home, work or wherever you are! All you have to do is tweet @richardbranson with the has tag #XmasJumpers. You could even be in with a chance of winning one of Richard Branson’s very own jumpers from the past (photo above)! Richard himself will select a winner on Tuesday 18th December, so come on and join in the fun!
