Today's Reason to Celebrate

December 20, 2024 is

National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day

Today is National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day! Embrace this light-hearted, festive day and wear your tackiest ugly Christmas sweater. Let your personal sense of fashion shine with a sweater emblazoned with Rudolph’s face or a spirited Christmas phrase – the more over the top, the better!

Held on the third Friday in December, this fun-filled holiday is the perfect way to kick off the holiday season – in style! You may ask yourself, how did this holiday trend emerge? Chevy Chase is sometimes credited with starting the ugly Christmas sweater trend, thanks to his role in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. While the sweaters began to go out of fashion in the 1990s, they surged back to popularity around 2001.

To celebrate, wear your favorite ugly Christmas sweater to the office, the store, or where ever today’s day takes you. To really get into the spirit, host a fun ugly Christmas sweater party this holiday season! Make sure to choose digital invitations for your party this holiday season to help cut back on unnecessary paper waste. When you choose digital, you help protect the environment.
