Back in the 1980’s we couldn’t get rid of them fast enough. You remember those hideous sweaters you always received from a well-meaning relative over the holidays.  These day’s we’ve embraced the ugly sweater and have learned to love those snowmen and dancing reindeer across the front.

On December 2, teachers and staff at Coral Springs Charter School got into the spirit by holding their first annual “Ugly Holiday Sweater Day” which was organized by high school teacher Adrian Carpio.

Carolyn McGuire, Assistant to the Athletic Director said, “We had great participation and it was a great way to unwind and show our holiday spirit before the busy end of the semester.”

Ugly sweaters are now a big business and there’s even a website dedicated to selling them called www.uglychristmassweater.com that will make $5.5 million this year selling them. They wrote on their website, “Besides the entertainment, people are happy to have something to laugh about. The holidays are usually fraught with political tensions. When you are wearing an ugly sweater, no one cares about your religious beliefs.”
