Ugly Christmas Sweaters. It can’t be a Christmas party, especially an office Christmas party without them. And, in case you didn’t know, not only is today December 15th, which is ten days before Christmas, it’s also, (at least according to the Internet) National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day.
This national day is celebrated on the third Friday of December. Don’t feel too bad if you didn’t know that today is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day since this national day has only been around since 2011. I’m not sure if Hallmark has a line of greeting cards yet for this day, but I do know that several airlines are offering early boarding today for those fashionable, or should I say unfashionable ugly-Christmas-sweater-wearing passengers. Also, if you haven’t got your ugly Christmas sweater yet, no need to fret, check out the thrift stores in your area.
Thrift stores have a lot of good options and clearly great prices too, and I’d say ugly Christmas sweaters are legitimately in fashion through the whole month of December. Also, many thrift stores support local and national charities, like Value Village, who support great organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters, YWCA, Easter Seals and many more worthy charities.
Check out to see which charities your local thrift stores support for your last minute funky fashion and holiday shopping, and, have a Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season!
P.S. Also today is the long awaited release date for STAR WARS, The Last Jedi! There are a lot of STAR WARS themed ugly Christmas sweaters out there, so if you are wearing one of those today, you are double winning! ;-)
