The 2018 Midterm elections signaled new hope and a redirection of electoral politics. Instead of an election of nasty campaigns commercials—well, there were a few—with candidates pandering to wealthy donors, the midterm elections were a return to civility and the issues that affect our citizenry. Let this resurgence of the common good flow to our gift giving this holiday season. Remember, it is not the cost, but the value and thought behind the gift.

This holiday season Fashion Reverie has curated an interesting array of fashionable gifts that will not only make your loved ones smile and squeal with joy, but will also be remembered and looked back on with fondness for many seasons to come. Additionally, these gifts will not empty your pockets. This season, affordability is one of the keys to Yuletide mirth!!

Helsingin Sanomats political holiday sweaters

In recent years, the most talked about fashion phenomenon during the holiday season has been the “ugly Christmas sweater” trend. Now the seasonal garment has been turned into something more than a mere fashion statement. As an attempt to keep important matters in the public eye, Helsingin Sanomat, the largest newspaper in the Nordics, has launched a series of ugly Christmas sweaters depicting the year’s ugliest news topics.

Instead of garish designs, the ugliness in the #uglytruthsweaters is more due to the subject matters presented. The series comprises of five shirts and depicts some of the past year’s ugliest news topics: climate change, plastic in our oceans, war, sexual harassment, and technological manipulation. Introduced under the tagline,the truth may be ugly, but it never goes out of style,” the collection reminds people that there is no matter that journalism should turn a blind eye to. 

These holiday politically messaged sweaters can be purchased on December 17 through the newspaper’s website.
