The Ugly Christmas Sweater craze has gone darned wacky. For many, it is a “got to wear” Christmas tradition.
The Ugly Christmas Sweater is so popular at parties, family gatherings, and other events…it’s even competitive!
Ugly sweater jubilance may, and probably should consist of overly ample amounts of frills.
Telltale signs of the ugly sweater are liberal uses of red and green, comically large depictions of snowmen, reindeer, and Christmas trees, and any sort of pom-pom or felt applique.
I myself have decided to jump on the Christmas sweater bandwagon this year; although my sweater has to have a point and purpose.
For several years now my Dear Mother has decided to do without a Christmas tree.
Imagine my glee when I located a sweater with none other than a full length Christmas tree on it.
Picture me in this sweater on Christmas Eve this year. After all, I do love red!
Now, I consider this to be more of a festive sweater, which many of you may still think is ugly, or garish.
You won’t be there, so I’m wearing it anyway.
It is sure to elicit wide-eyed stares, a guffaw or two, a tad of praise from my more loyal brothers and sisters, or a look from my younger sister who will be thinking how UN-surprised she is to see me wearing it. Ha!
So be it.
And why not…
Spock and Captain James T. Kirk did it.
The Royal Family appear to be doing it.
Jimmy Fallon does it on The Tonight Show’s “Twelve Days of Christmas Sweaters.”
You could actually wear a Christmas sweater so ugly that you would instantly be eligible for an Ugly Christmas Sweater Trophy.
No joke. Amazon sells these and a few more!!!
Maybe you already have.
Next Monday will be too late.
Christmas will be over.
You must do what thousands of other people are doing today!
