Xmas Jumper Day at Remus Rewards

As Christmas is fast approaching, the festive mood has already set in at Remus. While there are many traditions surrounding this time of year, one of the best is, wearing Christmas Jumpers.

This year Christmas Jumper Day at Remus Rewards proved a little different compared to previous years with home working conditions. Nonetheless we all got in the Christmas spirit and enjoyed a day in our festive jumpers.

Christmas Jumper Day History and significance

In 2019 alone, four million participated in the celebrations of this day and the charity received four million pounds. This unique event was launched in 2012, with people across the UK and Ireland encouraged to “make the world better with a sweater”.

However, the tradition of wearing a jumper around the time of Christmas was started in the 19th century in Scandinavia and Iceland. Many people made this festive knitwear by hand in order to keep warm as the temperatures dropped far below zero. Christmas jumpers soon became a winter wardrobe staple when affluent skiers started wearing it in the early 1900s.

When is Christmas Jumper Day?

A report in Express.UK has revealed that every year December 14 is celebrated as the Christmas Jumper Day in the United Kingdom and Ireland. The Christmas Jumper Day is a nation-wide event in both these countries which is meant to raise money for the Save the Children charity.

Everyone who wears a Christmas jumper on this day must donate at least £1 to the charity.
