    It is funny to think that ugly Christmas sweaters used to be a curse that reared its ugly head every year, now there are parties with ugly sweater themes and it is cool to don the ugliest sweater. Ha, love it!

      My parents have been wearing ugly Christmas sweaters/sweatshirts for years. Who've thunk they were actually trend setters.
