Christmas sweaters are the pinnacle of seasonal kitsch. They’re terrible, brightly colored, and make everyone look ridiculous. I adore them. These Game of Thrones Christmas sweaters, courtesy of Target? Chef’s kiss.

Via Pop Sugar, I’ve learned that Game of Thrones-branded Christmas sweaters are currently being sold by Target, for those of us who want to merge our pop culture obsessions with looking like walking candy canes.


There’s this one, which comically (?) merges a popular Christmas song with the Night King:

Silent night, zombie night... Is that not how that goes?

Or this one, which is more than a little optimistic for a Westeros Christmas:

Joy to the realm when I sit on the Throne.

And, of course, this one, for those of us who like puns but don’t enjoy trying:

For sleeve-text enthusiasts only.

None of these sweaters are really caked in enough royal blood to be proper Game of Thrones holiday representatives, but they sure are delightful, for incredibly tacky varieties of delightful. I don’t recommend you buy these. But if you do, send me pictures.

Game of Thrones returns for its final season next year, sometime.
