|What is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day?|
National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day was started in 2011 and is an opportunity for people everywhere to wear an ugly Christmas sweater throughout the entire day. The special day is celebrated on the 3rd Friday in the month of December. More information about this day can be found at www.nationaluglychristmassweaterday.org.
It is unclear who is responsible for creating this special day but it is widely celebrated in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. It is estimated that at least several hundred thousand people participate in this holiday each year by wearing their Christmas sweaters to school and work. Part of the novelty of this day is that it falls on a weekday so it is a challenge to wear your ugly Christmas sweater at a time when you might otherwise be wearing normal work attire.
