Today is a day for us to celebrate something on the other end of the scale. Something hideous, and appalling. Often the product of a misguided relatives attempt at a pleasing holiday gift. We are talking about, THE UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER! However, rather than run from them, we have embraced them and made them our own; creating today, December 16th, which is known as National Ugly Sweater Day.
If this is your first time hearing about this “prestigious” holiday, we can help get you up to speed. below is the background taken from the official National Ugly Sweater Day website.
“Have the holidays let you down? Do you feel like the magic and mystique of Christmas has faded with maturity and age? Well fear not my fine friends. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is here to save you. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is a day of light hearted fun and a day to be yourself and not that buttoned up corporate version of yourself you have grown to despise. Most importantly, National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is a day to make the holidays fun…the way they were intended to be! So this National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, leave the school uniform at home, keep the preppy office blouse in your closet, and whatever you do, don’t even think about taking your suit to work. All you need to wear is your ugly Christmas sweater because this is your day, this is our day, this is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day.”
