The ugly Christmas sweater. Apparently its a ‘thing’ now, as in…stores are making money selling ugly sweaters. Now of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But this has got to be up there with the ‘pet rock’. As I found myself shopping on-line recently for my very own ‘Ugly Christmas Sweater’ to wear for a special themed party, I had a thought…WHAT IN THE WORLD AM I DOING??!!
Why am I spending money on this?!
I will tell you why. Because I don’t feel like spending my time and effort decorating a sweater to make it truly, spectacularly UGLY. But that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the efforts others have put forth into creating an awesome Christmas ensemble.
After doing a Google Search for inspiration, here are some of the best family friendly sweaters I could find. Because everyone loves / needs a good laugh around the holidays!
