Two nostalgic Christmas traditions that we all love to hate (and which seem to always be gifted to us by older relatives) are fruitcakes and ugly Christmas sweaters. Fruitcakes may never win over our hearts, but Americans are definitely learning to embrace those sweaters. Ugly Christmas sweater parties are popping up all over the place, and I’ve seen friends try to top each other with outlandish sweaters. It has turned into a pretty fun aspect of Christmas festivities!
So when our friends at UglyChristmasSweater.com asked us to participate in their ugly sweater contest, we gladly accepted. They have plenty of ugly sweaters for sale (it’s okay to call them ugly… it’s right there in the company name!) but they’ve challenged us to make one of them even uglier.
Here’s the sweater they sent us, called “Stars and Santa”. Wow, it is pretty bad!
I’m going to work on this sweater this week to make it even uglier. They say that anything goes, so I’m going to pull out all the stops! I’ll be posting photos of my results next Monday for you to see.
