Posted on December 30, 2013 in Art & Graphic Design, Fun

There is a new holiday obsession that has been growing for some years now among the most fashionable members of our society. It typically involves grandma, the thrift store, brightly colored yarn, and a certain tongue-in-cheek hipster attitude!

This new obsession is known as the ugly Christmas sweater! Yes, my friend, you have just entered a winter blunderland of fuzzy reindeer, hairy Santas, itchy penguins, and some of the worst holiday fashion decisions you’ll ever see! For a bit of festive fun to celebrate the holidays, we have knitted together 10 of the best ugly Christmas sweaters for your holiday entertainment: ugly holiday sweater1 Original source: http://www.keatleyphoto.com/blog/2008/12/christmas-sweaters-and-little-stuffed-goats/

10. The Tearful 

She may cry, she may want to flee from the incessant itchiness and the sheer horror of the ugly holiday sweater, but you keep tight hold of her, mister, and you never let her go! Because any lady who agrees to wear that abomination of a sweater is a keeper!

It takes a REAL man to pull off a Christmas teddy bear sweater, and this guy does it with such rugged, beardly manliness that a whole roomful of ladies have just swooned! This dude wears yarn and takes no prisoners!

8. The Lurker

This guy wasn’t even invited to the Christmas sweater party; he just kinda turned up and hung out at the back! And I’m pretty sure that it was a mere coincidence that he was wearing this Christmas sweater outfit! (I suspect he rocks this look all year round!)

7. The Non-Ironic 

This is “pure” Christmas sweater! Worn without irony or jaded cynicism, this Pepto-Bismol-colored nightmare represents the true meaning of Christmas sweater; an artistic masterpiece created with lots of love and yarn! This old dear is keeping it real, son! So you need to give her your respect and admiration, right now, you hipster sweater wannabe!

6. The Token Dog

I just had to add a cute doggy in a sweater to this list! Not because I wanted to, but because it’s actually a law that every comedy blog list has to have a picture of a cute doggy in it doing something cute and…doggy! But that’s okay, because we love a dog in a sweater (even if the dog doesn’t)!

5.The Doorsteppers

These totally random but adorable oldies turn up at someone’s doorstep every year with their matching Christmas sweaters on show for us all to admire! We don’t know who they are, but we welcome them in anyway because they’re so cute and lovable.

4. The Lost in the Woods

This guy got drunk at the Christmas party and the next thing he knew, he was lost in the middle of the forest somewhere for the remainder of the holiday. I’m worried he won’t last much longer out there on his own! Still, at least he’s got his shades and his smile (and his super-ugly kitty cat sweater)!

3. The Infant Sized

We could all have done with not seeing this! But now that we have, we have to give this mustached man props for rocking a sweet holiday sweater that’s 12 sizes too small! (I’m a little concerned that he might’ve stretched that sweater out a bit.)

2. The Tough Guy

“You like my love hearts? You like my reindeer pattern? Go on and laugh, son! Write your little, funny comment. I want you to!…Just you try it and see what happens.”

Ahem! Doesn’t this fine gentleman look dashing in his fetching holiday sweater?
