The Season's Best Party Idea

I subscribe to a new online newsletter that sends notice of the week's events. On Monday I received word that on Friday--that's tomorrow--it's
Ugly Sweater Party Day
Global, Friday, Dec 12th 2014, All Day

In England, where sweaters are called "jumpers," it appears that the ugly Christmas jumper is a holiday tradition, albeit a fairly recent one. And, Christmas Jumper Day was begun by the charitable organization Save the Children, just a year ago.



The whole ugly jumper thing is enough of a British tradition that it has it's own Wikipedia entry!

For those who are familiar with the movie, Bridget Jones' Diary [DVD BRI], starring Renée Zellweger, you will remember Mr. Darcy's ugly Christmas jumper. (However, the ugly jumper may be easily forgotten as it is overshadowed by the lovely Colin Firth who is wearing it.)

At the Library we often can be seen wearing our official, seasonal Nesmith Library sweatshirt during the lead-up to Christmas. Stop by the Library tomorrow and see how many you can spot!
