Why is a jumper in American english called sweater and in German pullover? Because when it's cold the British just jump into their knitwear, the Germans pull it over and the Americans just sweat in it? Crazy.

I don't know - language is strange that way, but sometimes if you look up the etymology behind the words it makes sense. https://www.etymonline.com/word/sweater

Blame the french for Jupe... I'm very much an advocate for calling them pull overs.
