It's National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day today... each year, the third Friday of December is set aside to proudly wear ugly Christmas sweaters. So before you get dressed today... go find your ugly Christmas sweater and wear it! And don't just wear it, wear it proudly!

 

While we call it National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, did you know this observance started in Canada in 2011 and is also celebrated in the United Kingdom? Maybe the name should be changed to International Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. The day has become very popular as it's estimated that several hundred thousand people don their ugly Christmas regalia each year in observance.

 

What I love about participating in National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is that it's so easy and participating doesn't make you fat or tipsy! All you have to do is wear an ugly Christmas sweater! (Although I suppose if your sweater is ugly enough, some might thing you are tipsy!)

 

Tips from NationalCalendarDay.com on how to show off your ugly Christmas sweater and celebrate the day "in style:"

 

  • Animal or cartoon characters with a holiday theme are a great starting place. Think reindeer, snowmen, mice, kittens or elves.

  • National Ugly Christmas Sweater DaySelect ridiculous colors. The more they clash, the better.

  • Embellish. Scratch that. Over-embellish! Pom-poms, bells, felt, tinsle or any other glittery, jingly items laying around the house.

  • Add a collar, dickey or ruffle.

  • Electrify it! Put Rudolph to shame and go to the head of the team with bright, flashing lights!

  • Give it some 80's flair with big shoulder pads.

 

Don't own an ugly Christmas sweater? No worries... here are five places where you can buy your own ugly Christmas sweater. It might be too late for 2017, but you can put one away for next year.

George Souto ~ hi George,,,, sometimes when I look at pictures of myself from the 1970's I think that about my clothing back then! I don't think that decade was particularly good for fashion.

How fun. I guess we missed our chance. :)  I do think it's very fun to see offices get involved. And enjoying the season together builds camaraderie.

Dang! I got rid of all my ugly Christmas sweaters. (I think they all shrank or developed pills). Time to acquire some new ones.

Well, darn, I missed it, Nina. But then I don't own an ugly sweater, and not that many sweaters to begin with having left the really cold weather behind years ago! But I have seen some beauties over the years! Or should I say uglies?!
