Nashville, Tenn. – A choir of PETA supporters wearing “ugly” Christmas sweaters featuring bloodied stuffed sheep protruding from the front and back will serenade shoppers in downtown Nashville on Tuesday, urging them to purchase only vegan clothing and gifts and never buy wool. Audiences will be treated to a delightful concert of classic Christmas carols with a twist—including “Violent Night” and “Rudolph the Vegan Reindeer.”

When:    Tuesday, December 12, 12 noon

Where:    At the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, Nashville

“There’s no comfort or joy for sheep who are routinely beaten and mutilated, all for fleeting holiday fashions,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA encourages everyone to deck their halls and their closets with cozy vegan fabrics such as soy cashmere, recycled polyester, and sustainably farmed hemp to help keep cruelty off their shopping lists.”

PETA—whose motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to wear”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
