You just can't make new holiday sweaters "ugly" on purpose! Classic holiday sweaters with all of their horrible appeal have to be old! The reason they are ugly is because someone decades ago thought this was a good idea and some poor sap actually felt bad enough to wear it!

Today savvy shoppers hit every second hand store in town, looking for the perfect ugly holiday sweater. There are now websites dedicated to the art of the ugly sweater. Click here for an ugly sweater website. 

Even local universities have entered the arena of the horrible holiday garb. In my opinion, If you didn't get it from the Goodwill or gleep it from dad's closet, then it doesn't count. Newer is never better in the realm of the ugly holiday sweater!
