RISEBA Christmas Sweater Week
During the week from December 18 to 22, we invite both students and staff to come dressed in their Christmas spirit sweaters.
The tradition of wearing Christmas sweaters is believed to originate from the USA, where fathers wore them in the 1950s as Santa’s helpers when giving presents. Others believe that the tradition originated from festive parties with friends – the brighter and more colourful the sweater, the better!
You may have spotted Christmas sweaters in popular films such as Home Alone (1990), Bridget Jones’s Diary (2001) and Office Christmas Party (2016).
Of course, we will be very happy to receive your photos, as well as those published on social media, mentioning RISEBA. We invite you to express your festive spirit and find your special Christmas sweater to wear on campus between December 18 and 22.
