One of the best places to wear your ugly Christmas sweater is to a Christmas parade. There are hundreds of these parades held around the world every year, and they are the perfect place to wear your Christmas sweater. And because these events are generally pet friendly, you can also bring along your dog in their matching Christmas sweater.
A couple large parades include:
The Macey's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City is the largest parade in the world, and it concludes with the arrival of Santa Claus.
The Toronto Santa Claus parade, which was started in 1905 by the Eaton's Department Store, is the largest Christmas parade in Canada.
Other notable parades include:
- The Grand Festival of Lights Parade in the Philippines
- Hamleys Christmas Toy Parade in London, England
- A Christmas Family Parade at Disneyland in California.
- Vancouver Christmas Parade in Vancouver, BC.
- Sydney Christmas Parade in Australia.
Christmas parades usually mark the beginning of the Christmas season, which includes many more opportunities for you to wear your Christmas sweater, such as when you are shopping for Christmas presents at one of the many Christmas Markets that open up at this time of the year. Or if crowds aren't your thing, you can just spend the days and weeks leading up to Christmas inside watching Christmas TV specials, which include many of the largest parades.
