When December rolls around, you can’t swing a candy cane without hitting someone wearing an ugly holiday sweater. And your inbox is probably full of invites to ugly sweater parties. But where on earth did this trend get its start? Why is everyone celebrating hideous Xmas apparel? And most importantly, how can you become a part of this history?
Ugly sweaters have been around for a long time. In the very old days of hand-knitted clothing, most of these hideous sweaters were probably created on accident. Someone forgot to knit one, purl two, and the piece just came out looking wonky. Later on, crafty grandmas probably thought they were doing their grandkids a favor by accenting winter wear with garish decorations. But sweaters that were designed to be hideous on purpose, first came on the scene in the 1980s. The Bill Huxtable character on The Cosby Show offended the fashion sensibilities of American audiences for eight years by wearing oversized sweaters, ornately designed with oddly offbeat patterns. Then in 1989 Chevy Chase added his own Fair Isle twist to the theme, as Clark Griswold in National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation movie. It wasn’t long before ugly Christmas sweaters became a favorite holiday apparel item. And beyond the basic, there are a lot of combinations to make it more unique, like grinch ugly christmas sweater or elf ugly christmas sweater or anything, any characters that you love.
Not only sweater but the ugly christmas pattern also used on shirt that they call: ugly christmas t-shirt
