National Sweater Day is an annual commemoration celebrated on February 4th of every year. We very well knew that there is one thing in the garment that protects and keeps us warm and hot throughout the winter season. It is none other than the sweaters which make the people of all age groups from the young and old stay cosy and comfortable. National Sweater Day is celebrated to bring in awareness about the importance of saving energy by switching off the heat and wearing on the sweaters. The Day indeed celebrates both the usefulness of the sweaters and consumption of energy.
“I like sweaters. I have a sweater obsession, I guess.” – Drake
History of National Sweater Day
The National Sweater Day has been in celebration since the year 2010. World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada campaign, presented by Loblaw Companies Limited has established this celebration Day. The Day has been engaged over one million Canadians since then. WWF has aimed at making the people turn down their heat and turn up wearing their sweaters in the name of energy conservation. The Sweater Day is all the way a fun way to learn about the importance of conserving energy thereby encouraging you to use less heat all the winter. It is all about valuing energy by taking this Day as the chance to think differently about how to use power.
Sweaters are the finely knitted garment and a versatile item of clothing that can be worn on top of almost any outfit. Wear the sweaters to help in saving the renewable energy by changing the behaviours around the energy consumption.

Cozy up in your woolliest sweater to keep you warm in the chilly February. The Day is intended to creates awareness in the society by offering fun and straightforward alternatives to the energy problems.
