Happy National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day

I can’t be the only person that has received a truly hideous holiday-themed garment and wonder what vibe I’d given off that would make anyone think that I should be given clothing that talked, glowed, blinked or buzzed. Now "ugly" sweaters are all the rage. The gift of a true ugly sweater is akin to the bridesmaid dress as you are assured that you will be able to wear it again and again. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day is celebrated the third Friday of December each year. So break out your holiday garb and make this December 18, 2015 an ugly Christmas sweater to remember. (Yup, there is a holiday for that. ) The motto is "Bringing out the best in everyone by putting on the worst."  National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day has partnered with Save the Children . So wear that ugly sweater and donate $5 to children in need. Save the Children is also the recipient of all sanctioned Ugly Sweater Road races.   So  "Make the World Better with a Sweater"

I like to do something that will stir up the pot and make people think about what is natural and what is artificial,” say Burnett. “The exhibit will be in two to three locations around Long Lake. It is nice to be able to bring something back to my hometown. They are supportive of new ideas in this small community.”
