When you talk about ugly Christmas sweaters, nothing is too much or too exaggerated. The silliest it looks, the better it is. The uglier it seems, the trendier you are. You can add more sparkles, pin more designs, light up things, and stitch on other holiday things you fancy. There is no limit when it comes to designing or choosing your ugly Christmas sweater. As the saying goes, ‘You are limited only by your imagination’.
There are now various events and parties where one can join and wear their most bespectacled ugly Christmas sweater and not be shy about it. It is the crowning glory of the participants in these celebrations. The uglier and sillier it gets, the more you fit in the crowd. Not just any other crowd but a hoard of hundreds and thousands of participants who are willing to don their most neglected (for some, newly bought) ugly Christmas sweaters.
Remember those Christmases years back when you dread the day your old Aunt will give you another one of those silly sweaters. You open the gift with fake enthusiasm and express your thanks with a promise to wear it soon only to be cheered on by cousins to try it on now. Then you wear your newest ugly Christmas sweater for the duration of the party while avoiding having too many photographs in it that will bite you back years from now. If you still remember then you know now that those sweaters are not silly but you are.
Wherever you are, thrift stores and bargain shops are now the targeted spots when looking for the perfect and ugliest Christmas sweater. It makes you long for those years when you still get one every holiday. Now you have to buy your own and it cost as much as your regular sweater, only uglier and brighter.
The trend of the ugly Christmas sweater is growing each day and now that the holiday season is coming fast, there is a renewed sense of urgency to look for the coolest sweater. Some enjoy the yearly ugly Christmas sweater events while some would love to jump into the bandwagon and try the latest craze.
