National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is quite possibly the finest day of the year. A day filled with family, fun, joy & cheer, and of course, ugly Christmas sweaters. Ugly Christmas sweaters have been around since Grandma first started knitting, but now you can wear them for an even better reason than just being quirky. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is a national holiday started in 2011 by a group of ugly Christmas sweater lovers that wanted to have a day to enjoy sporting the ugliest sweaters around. They spend countless hours searching for the tackiest sweaters this world has ever seen. But why you might ask?
National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is a fun national holiday that the whole family can enjoy. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day encourages families to get involved and have some fun. You can really make the most of this national holiday by making your own ugly sweaters or throwing an ugly Christmas sweater party. Their website has a great list of places to buy unique and interesting sweaters. Whatever you do, make sure to tell others about the holiday and encourage people to donate and have fun. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is beyond rocking a dorky sweater – it’s about cherishing those closest to you and helping others too.
For 2014, National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day has partnered with the Save the Children foundation for a brand new “Make the World Better with a Sweater” charity campaign. People across the world can wear their ugly Christmas sweaters to help raise awareness and contribute charitable donations for children in need. Last year the campaign had massive success and we’re trying to raise even more awareness this year.
Wear your ugly sweater on Dec 12th, encourage others to participate, and go online to donate
