ugly christmas sweaterIt's hard to tell when the ugly Christmas sweater went from a sure sign of bad taste (or color blindness) to an ironic holiday diversion. The awful color combos, sequins, fur and other atrocities on that gift from Grandma make for a perfect way to celebrate the holidays in a delightful, over-the-top fashion. Check out some of the worst we could find in the gallery below. It will inspire amazing ideas for your own Ugly Christmas Sweater party. Whether you think they're hi-larious or you hate them to pieces, we think we can all agree it's a good thing they only come around once a year.
