We begin today's post with a photo feature the Sun (UK) ran a few days ago which showed what Christmas in Britain looked like up to 100 years ago. I am particularly fascinated by the World War II photos, like the gas mask mistletoe smoochers at left. Take a look at the whole set via this link!
"Christmas Jumper Day is an annual fundraising campaign in the UK organized by the charity Save The Children. On a specific Friday in December, people are encouraged to make the world better with a sweater and raise funds for Save the Children by wearing a Christmas jumper and making a minimum donation of £1.
Those taking part can wear a Christmas jumper they already own, decorate an existing jumper with festive decorations, or even knit their own. Christmas Jumper Day is popular with schools and workplaces. Groups may take part in additional fundraising activities on the day, as well as making donations. Save the Children launched their Christmas Jumper Day in 2012 on Friday, 14 December."
The Royals gave their full permission for the exhibit (LOVE the Corgi jumpers!) and it's something that has taken off in both schools and workplaces since it was first introduced.
Coming Tomorrow: Reader Submission Day, where we turn the whole kit and kaboodle over to you!
