sweater-partyChristmas time is always a fun time of year. Gift giving and get-togethers with friends and family around the holidays have always been fun, but what makes it our favorite time of year is the humor. We love to play practical jokes and love to have fun with each other.

That’s why love having ugly Christmas sweater parties. It’s a time for everyone to dress up in the most obnoxious and hideous thing they can find in order to make their friends laugh and have a good time.

Originally, we thought of the idea while we were shopping in Goodwill for some clothes and ran across these horrible Bill Cosby era sweaters and thought wouldn’t it be fun to wear these as a joke. We work them to a few office Christmas parties and everyone loved them. Thus, we started hosting sweater parties a few years ago and it was a huge hit.

We think people like it so much because it’s flat out fun. Who doesn’t want to go to a party with their friends and look ridiculous? It’s kind of like the Halloween of Christmas time. More importantly, it gives people a chance to let loose and have fun. No more boring office holiday parties where you come straight from work in your uniform or suit. You can dress up and joke around with your friends, family, and coworkers.

It also lets people be creative and make their own creations or interpret things differently. It seems like every year we see new sweaters that blow our minds with how ridiculous and creative they are. Some of them can’t really even be considered a sweater. They are more of a X-mas costume or something.

We love this time of year because of things like this. We love it so much that we make this site to share some of the best ugly xmas sweaters that we’ve found over the years. We hope you enjoy it and find some great sweaters and funny gag gifts to surprise your family and friends with this holiday season.
