  1. Ugh, I hate this new trend of ugly Christmas sweaters. People ask at my work how they can make there ugly sweaters even more obnoxious with lights or sounds.

    What makes it worse is that my company is now “encouraging” us employees to wear our own ugly sweaters.

    • I kind of want to get a geeky ugly Christmas sweater, so I can be “trendy” while also catering to my geeky side. I’ve seen some pretty neat ones that were Doctor Who or Star Wars themed, where it takes a moment to realize all the patterns are fandom-related rather than generic Christmassy.

      • The one I wanted is is actually a sweatshirt with a sweater print aaying “Grandma Got Run Over by a Mustang”, unfortunetly, they done make them in extra fat.

      • Also I’m pretty sure the originals were supposed to look nice and homey with traditional patterns and the like, but the general consensus was that they were tacky more than anything. And then that tackiness became “hip.”

        • I think buying an intentionally ugly Christmas sweater to be hip is cheating. Christmas sweaters are those hand knitted by [insert elderly relative here] that are horrible and ugly but that you have to wear to family functions so you don’t insult them. You hate the sweater, and hate wearing it, and possibly other people in your family are also obligated to wear an ugly sweater knitted by that same relative.

          If you wear it ironically or to be trendy, you’re doing it wrong.

  2. Ummm… I have that Christmas tree sweater with the striped sleeves. It’s from Target. Bought it to wear to an Ugly Sweater party this year. There are sweat pants that match the sleeves. My co-worker bought the entire suit for the party.
