Fugly Sweater Season Alert

I don't get it, you guys. The ugly sweater thing. I don't own one. No one in my house owns one. Because THEY ARE UGLY. Do you get a cash prize for winning an ugly sweater contest? Help me understand. I was shopping last weekend and almost got plowed over by an angry mob (or a family of four) who spied a display of fugly sweaters. 

"These are sooooo ugly!" One of them squealed.



I have never witnessed so much joy over something so ugly. Excluding the birth of my cousin's baby. An 11-pound baby, born vaginally after 33 hours of labor is not a pretty sight, I don't care what anyone says. I digress.



Back to these sweaters. I guess I can understand how slipping into a hideous sweater and heading to a party could be advantageous. 



Ugly sweater advantage number one. 

If you go way too hard on the holiday eggnog, you don't have to worry about throwing up on your pretty party clothes. Ugly sweaters are at the very least, expendable. 



Ugly sweater advantage number two.

You probably won't engage in casual, drunken sex. Therefore, you will also not pick up an unwanted STD or a baby. Ugly sweaters could double as birth control. Not sexy.



Ugly sweater advantage number three.

If you get your ugly sweater parties in before December 25th, you can take it off, Febreeze that ugly thing, and ta-dah! 



Regift your ugly sweater to your least favorite family member. 

Hmm. Maybe these ugly sweaters aren't so bad after all? If I had to rock one, it would be one of these:




Do you own an ugly sweater? Tell me about it!

  7. Nope, no ugly sweaters here. Though my kids have some sweaters that might be considered ugly Christmas sweaters. But ugly things are instantly cute when in miniature...kind of like crocs. Those things are awful on adults, but adorable on little toes. If I ever get invited to an ugly sweater party, I'll just wear my plain red sweater and buy a set of ugly reindeer antlers.

    1. True story, no one hates Crocs more than I do. BUT when my son was a toddler, he had a pair in every color. He slayed the Croc game because ridiculously adorable! You'll be adorable in your reindeer antlers. I'm staying in my pajamas all day because that's how I roll. ;)

  8. Lord, look at that poor bastard in the snowflake get-up! I'm with you: I don't understand this trend whatsoever. If I am going to go through the money and effort of getting a babysitter to go to a party, I want to look FLY, not uglier than usual. Funny stuff! #happynowlinkup
