Still in denial that ugly Christmas sweaters are back? Well get with it, because they’re here to stay… or at least that’s what the guys at National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day think.
National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day started in 2011 after a group of college friends had been throwing ugly Christmas sweater parties. They loved them so much they decided to devote an entire day to it. Fast forward four years and there’s now millions of participants pulling ugly Christmas sweaters out of old boxes and buying shiny new ones online.
Ugly Christmas sweaters aren’t just ugly this year either. They’re for a good cause. Ugly Christmas sweaters now have a magical power – they can raise money. Save theChildren, Tipsy Elves, and National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day partnered up for a unique campaign, called “Make the World Better with a Sweater.” The campaign asks participants of National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day to wear their sweater this Friday and go online to donate to Save the Children’s charitable initiative – helping children in need.
People are getting involved with Save the Children’s campaign in all kinds of ways. From ugly Christmas sweater parties to DIY crafting kits, the nation is being swept by ugly Christmas sweater fever. If you don’t have one, goonline to buy a sweater or travel to a local thrift shop. Whatever you do this holiday season, remember to let loose and have some fun. The whole point of National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is to forget about everything else and just enjoy the holidays. Don’t miss out on this fun opportunity.
