National Jersey Friday
Celebrated on the first Friday of November, National Jersey Friday takes casual Friday to a whole new level. It is a way of celebrating our favorite sports teams so we can all join in the banter, and laugh at our teams’ colors due to their current form or lowly position. Let’s see why everyone should get involved and show their support for your favorite player on the team.
What Is National Jersey Friday?
November is a time where Football season is well underway, and families have already huddled around the TV and watched their team in unison many times. Still, this is more than a private gathering at home, National Jersey Friday means wearing your colors around town, wherever you go. As Americans, comradery, and arguments are part of the fun. We love to trash talk and everyone thinks they know more about sports than the next guy.
Created by the NFL Players Association to unite sports fans, the word Jersey derives from the island of the same name in the English Channel. Jersey was famous for its sweaters, which is fitting since sports uniforms became known by the same name eventually.
Jersey Day encourages debates, tears, tense debates about what’s what in the world of sports. National Jersey Friday started a football trend, but not it doesn’t matter what team or sport you follow, just pull that Jersey on the first Friday of November.
How To Observe National Jersey Friday
The only way to observe it is to get involved. Be sure to wash that jersey in advance, wear a classic from a time where your team was more successful, and ready yourself with the stats of your most successful era.
We like to see how people get involved, and you could inspire others by using the hashtag #NationalJerseyDay or use it to see how others around the States show their colors with pride.
