A few years ago my husband and I decided to start a tradition of ugly Christmas sweaters. It started as a joke and now has become one of my favorite parts about planning for Christmas. We are the only ones in our family who does it and I love it! Last year I rocked the Sequin Bow on Fair Isle sweater as it was all I could find at the last minute. This year I started early and have been having a lot of fun shopping. With the ugly Christmas sweater parties are in full swing and there have been really good deals left and right.
Traditional Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Raise your hand of you had any of these as a kid. I can honestly say I wore similar ones back when they were the way to go. I love it and these always bring back good memories for me. My mom & Grandma had dozens and seeing these floating around the internet just makes my heart happy.
Religious Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Some of these might borderline on the side of inappropriate or may offend at least one person. I tend to be pretty open when it comes to humor. My church growing up loved to laugh and joke around so these just made my day to find them. One of these years I will rock these.
Just Funny Ugly Christmas Sweaters
At the end of the day, some ugly Christmas sweaters are just plain funny. From drinking games to internet memes, what doesn’t get turned into a sweater these days?
Animal Ugly Christmas Sweaters
Our favorite furry friends can’t be left out of the fun. While I’m not against dressing up my dog (she hates it when that happens) for Christmas, there are some great animal themed ugly Christmas Sweaters.
You can’t leave the little ones out of the fun. I picked up Little Man’s ugly sweater this summer when it was on sale at Zulilly. I don’t think many clothes that are made for kids are necessarily ugly, they are just more fun.
The thing about ugly Christmas sweaters is that the possibilities are endless. Every year I don’t think they can get any better, yet I find myself constantly amazed at what I come across. Sometimes I think the uglier the better. I can’t wait to see what else pops up!
