Here it is --- National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day! Are you celebrating this festive holiday with us?

Research shows this newer national day "officially" started in 2011, when people decided it was a great way to lighten up what is typically a busy (stressful?) time, and so began the tradition of showing up wearing awful, goofy, hideous, funny, ugly sweaters on the 3rd Friday in December. It's now a day celebrated in offices, work-sites, schools, parties, concerts, and more, an all around the world.

If you are still trying to figure out what to wear, or you want to win the prize for the beyond-ugly-sweater, I've gathered a few ideas for you to take yours to the next level:

  • Animal or cartoon characters with a holiday theme. Look for reindeer, snowmen, mice, kittens or elves.
  • Ridiculous colors. The more the colors clash, the better for your ugly sweater!
  • Embellish it. Attach pom-poms, bells, felt, tinsle or any other glittery, jingly bling-bling things. How 'bout a collar,dickey or some ruffles?
  • Electrify your design. Add some bright, flashing lights to it, or just wear 'em around your neck.
  • 80s flair is a style all its own. Try some shoulder pads, and the bigger the better!.

The biggest way to pull off your ugly sweater? Wear it with pride! And don't be afraid to share it with us on our 94.9 WOLX Facebook, twitter or Instagram pages. Be sure to tag us in your post, and use the hashtag #UglyChristmasSweaterDay
