It'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

. 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.
