If you say it's too early to think about Christmas, you’re lying. With under 5 weeks to go, it's officially Home Alone watching time and we won't hear otherwise and it wouldn't be Christmas without a cheesy festive jumper now, would it? Previously reserved for the cringy Uncles out there (and not forgetting Mark Darcy), who seem to have the knack for always finding the ugliest, most cheesy Christmas jumper out there, the traditional novelty Christmas jumper has had a revamp and as each Christmas comes around, the high street is seeing more and more demand for Christmas jumpers and we think we know why. From light up Christmas jumpers to the traditional knitted versions to more subtle festive slogan knits, the day to don your most festive outfit with pride is almost upon us and what is that day do we hear you ask? Why, it’s Christmas Jumper Day of course…
WHEN IS THE NATIONAL CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY?
Christmas Jumper Day 2018 falls on Friday, 14th December, the third Friday in December, meaning you still have plenty of time to get your festive hands on the perfect Christmas jumper before you have to don it on Christmas Jumper day in a few weeks.
WHAT IS CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY?
Christmas Jumper Day is an annual charity fundraising campaign founded and organised by the charity Save the Children in 2012, which encourages people to “make the world better with a sweater” by donating £2 to Save the Children to help save children's lives across the world. Your £2 will go towards providing essential healthcare, protection, education and food to millions of children across the world who sadly miss out on all those basics and most importantly, will give children the chance to be children again.
HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED WITH CHRISTMAS JUMPER DAY 2017?
Simply don a Christmas jumper of your choice on Friday, 14th December and donate a minimum of £2 to the charity Save the Children. Most workplaces, schools and organisations will be taking part in the annual campaign on 14th December, with many taking part in additional fundraising activities throughout the day, so gather the troops in school, at uni or in the office and make this year's national Christmas Jumper Day even bigger and more successful than the last! Everyone can take part and last year's Christmas Jumper Day saw more than 5 million people take part, so sign up to the fundraising event now if you wish to go further than just donning your festive knit this December 15th...
