Never heard of it? Maybe it’s because it’s a Canadian holiday. But really, there is such a thing as National Sweater Day, and it’s supposed to be a day to wear all those sweaters that grandma got you for one reason or another.
And it’s not just to make grandma feel better about herself. National Sweater Day works in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund to take action against climate change. Every person who wears a sweater is also asked to turn the heat down in their home a few degrees. According to the site, “If every Canadian lowered the heat a few degrees this winter, it’d be like taking 300,000 vehicles off the road!” The Canadians are on to something, eh?
