As far back as the Yo Sox team can remember, the ugly Christmas sweater has been a holiday staple. From work parties, to festive pub crawls or family get togethers, there is always that one person that always shows up in a tacky yet crowd pleasing pullover.
At first you would see people wearing questionable knit sweaters that they most likely picked up at a local thrift store. Then people began tapping into their creative sides, creating homemade sweaters covered in more baubles, bows and ornaments then you thought possible.
But now, you more commonly see people wearing ugly holiday sweaters that are covered with popular sports logos, band names or movie titles and sold at a hefty penny. Which is quite ironic considering this trend become popular because people originally would show up in the cheapest, ugliest sweater they could find!
So what is it that makes these sweaters so popular? It is most likely the entertainment factor. There isn’t much better than seeing your friends or colleagues crack up when you walk into the holiday party.
