National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, which originated in 2011, is here on Friday according to the National Days Calendar. 

Ugly Christmas sweaters are apparently not a seasonal thing to be worn just any old day of the holiday season. There is a day when it's on the Calendar. So if you need an excuse to dust off your ugly Christmas sweater this is it.

You are encouraged to go all out on the bold ugliness of your over the top creative and festive endeavor with added ruffles, ornaments and whatever else your imagination comes up with. Maybe flashing lights, pom-poms, bells or tinsel? Make haste, this is the only day you're officially allowed to do this so make the most of it!

Happy Ugly Christmas Sweater Day. You can follow this link to the National Days Calendar page for more ugly inspiration! You may get so inspired, you'll want to wear it everyday from now to Christmas or New Years!  Watch out for fashion police and have fun!
