  Monday Morning Mirth  

A phenomenon that just keeps getting bigger and BIGGER:
the Ugly Christmas sweater party!

All over the United States this weekend, people gathered for good cheer, nog, and WARDROBE! This has become such a favorite of the masses, there are now a bunch of websites selling, yes, U.G.L.Y.

No soiree by you!? Come on down to this virtual Shrine to Intarsia and party on…

Click on the white arrow to start and click on the little pictures to see an Awesome Christmas Sweater! If you click on the arrow box in the lower right corner, the slideshow will go full screen :)


MORE! A wonderful story of the Santa in NYC! On the Street with wonderful photographer Bill Cunningham…

    If only they had shoulder pads …

    Heinous sweaters with a capital HEINOUS. Today’s post needs to come with a shot of coca cola syrup to alleviate the nausea, Ms. Bonnie.

    My cousin was at SantaCon–sounds like it was a LOT of fun! BTW, I just ordered the Westside pattern and can’t wait to get started–I see a new Christmas hat in my future!

    OMG, this his hilarious. I really paused at the sweater that had actual light up Christmas lights…..that is what that was, wasn’t it?

    It goes to show that people should be reminded that a publicly searchable picture CAN be forever! Good example is the dude in mid-waist sweater and undies.

    We were Santa mobbed here in SF on the 16th. They drank all the egg nog and frightened the reindeer! Almost as much fun visually as International PeeWee Herman Day.

  6. Seanna Lea says:

    Wow. I think I saw one or two tasteful sweaters in that slideshow, but otherwise it was kind of awe inspiring (and not in the good way).

  7. Bonne Marie says:

    I am seriously wanting to go to SantaCon next year in NYC…

    in the midst of all the gaudy I spotted a terrible towel in the background, who’s got the pittsburgh connection?
