Here at Castleford, we’ve got a lot of time for memes.
A good meme can go viral – spreading ideas throughout the e-community. Memes can be used in marketing to create a buzz around a product or service. They can highlight important political issues and drive meaningful conversations. Most of the time though, memes serve a singular purpose: to make you laugh very, very hard.
Without further adieu, we present twelve of our favourite memes, all centred around another love of ours: ugly Christmas sweaters.

Ugly sweater? More like cutest thing we’ve ever seen.
And our closing word of advice: this Christmas, embrace your inner Vin Diesel wearing a Christmas sweater in front of a snowy white backdrop. You won’t regret it.
