National MP Tim van de Molen bestrode the corridors of Parliament in a divisive seasonal outfit today. His move got us thinking: what's the best Christmas outfit there is?
Mr van de Molen was on his way to caucus when he was spied sporting the suit, which looked as if it had been constructed from Christmas wrapping paper.

Clearly, it's difficult to go past the sweaters and tinsel scarves - and that brooch! - in Wham's 'Last Christmas' video.
How about US basketball star LeBron James' fetching PJs?
But really, the BBC has the best of it, with a piece entitled 288 Sausage Dogs in Christmas Sweaters.

The summer weather didn't stop Ghost sporting this Christmas scarf.
RNZ understands Rambo was much happier about this than she looks.
It's not just cats and dogs that get in on the action.
