Tacky Christmas Sweater #3: “World Record Setting”

Home / Culture / Tacky Christmas Sweater #3: “World Record Setting”

jacky-sweater-big1.jpgThough this sweater may look as though it was acquired for three dollars on Ebay, Jacky actually won it, having come in first in the 2008 Annual Snow Mirth & Merriment Competition, held each winter near Nome, Alaska. The competition comprises a variety of demanding snow and ice sculptural events, including Snowball & Fort and Snow Angel. However as the ceremonial sweater attests, it’s Snowman where Jacky really excels. Jacky won gold in the event last year, erecting a 2.6-meter ice and snow figure — scarf, carrot and all — in just under 38 seconds. A new world record!

Needless to say, we’re all very, very proud, and fully expect she’ll get both the car and the condo she requested from Santa this Christmas.
