People have been receiving ugly Christmas sweaters from their grandmas for years. They were gaudy, tacky, horrible looking things that you luckily only had to wear once before you could hide it in the back of your closet. But somewhere along the way some enterprising party animal decided that an ugly Christmas sweater should be something to embrace instead of embarrassed of. Not much is known about the first ugly Christmas sweater party, except that there was eggnog, fruitcake, and a sexy incident involving mistletoe and reindeer antlers. The party was a rousing success, and ugly Christmas sweater parties soon became a staple of the holiday season. There’s food and drinks and everyone looks terrible. It’s good times. If you have to borrow an ugly sweater from someone, I would advise you to tell them that it’s just a regular Christmas sweater party.
