Well, what makes a Christmas sweater ugly, exactly?
My dad loves those sweatshirts that have a funny saying. He was very fond of his "Bah humbug" sweatshirt with the photo of Homer Simpson.
One year hubby bought me a red sweater with scalloped hem that had a Christmas tree on it. On the tree were little bows and little silver beads for balls. There wasn't any glitter. I loved that sweater and wore it proudly. Maybe some thought it ugly b/c I had one b.i.l. who would poke fun every year. I paid him no mind.
So, I decided to add to my collection. I have another red one that has a snowflake/diamond pattern on the front with gold thread. Then, I bought another sweater which is black and has a giant Christmas bow on it and the bow has shiny metallic spangles on it. I think these sweaters are very festive and don't give a fig who thinks they are funny, ugly or what not.
Alas, I can no longer wear my beloved sweaters. I have shed 88 pounds and they are hanging off of me. I'd be happy to donate as I have given away bags of clothing but I may keep my original red, Christmas tree sweater as a keepsake.
