Ugly Christmas Sweater Day was started in 2011 by Christmas sweater lovers as a way to lighten up the busy holidays and to show off their absurdly ugly sweaters. The day has grown in popularity and is celebrated worldwide. We can also say that it has become a tradition in our school as this is our 4th year to celebrate the day in VGM.
In many countries, the holiday is associated with fundraising events for children’s charities. You can also make a donation to any charity you like. Even the tiniest contribution counts! Don´t be elfish!
