I don’t want to openly admit that I understand the recent surge in ugly Christmas sweater popularity. Oh the irony, blah, blah, blah. I know it has been a tradition for Holiday parties for years. But this is the first year that it has been so in my face. On recent trips to the thrift stores I keep encountering groups of all ages, combing the sweater racks for ugly Christmas sweaters. Pulling out what they consider to be “ugly” and having a laugh. Um, that sequined 80’s joint is not ugly. Go back to the mall and leave me alone.
There are websites devoted solely to the ugly Christmas sweater and certain sweaters fetch a premium on eBay, like over a $100. Damn, I must be in the wrong business. I hate to break it to you people breaking the bank on a eBay purchase so you can win first prize at your office party: there is a place called a second hand store and as long as you promise to be quiet and quick you can get an ugly Christmas sweater for $5.99. Really.
