Long before ugly Christmas sweaters were accepted (or expected!) at holiday parties, we dreaded the gift from a knit-happy relative. As kids, we cringed opening the box year after year, never imagining they could ever get any uglier, yet a new one emerged every Christmas. Today we celebrate ugly Christmas sweaters and embrace them as part of the holiday spirit. Wearing them, making them, and seeing them everywhere is becoming the norm. And since this new tradition isn’t going anywhere soon – at least we hope not, we’ve found a few irresistibly funny Christmas sweaters we just had to share. Of course, we got in on the fun, too, with a few of our own.
