Do the Bunny Hop in These Ugly Easter Sweaters

Snapshot_20160225_8

This is me in my pastel color turtleneck sweater that I’ve had for almost a decade. It’s not necessarily an Easter sweater nor is it ugly. But for a post like this, it’ll do. I’ve also did a pair of rabbit ears for good measure.

Since Easter is widely considered a spring holiday, it’s normally not associated with sweaters. But since Easter falls in early spring like in March and April, sometimes the weather could be rainy, cold, or erratic. And it’s not unheard of in my area to snow on the holiday which I have personally seen at least once. Yet, weather conditions aside, it appears that the lure of the ugly sweater is so great that they just have to have them for Easter as I’ve searched the depths of Google Images and Pinterest for them. And they are as charmingly ghastly as you’d expect with bunnies, eggs, chicks, and other motifs for your heart’s content. Not to mention, they’re in the pastel spring colors associated with the holiday, too. Some of them I’m wearing in the picture you see above if you get my drift. If you were a kid, you’d probably have seen them on your elementary school teacher. So for your reading pleasure, I bring you a treasure trove of some of the tackiest Easter sweaters around.

  1. Remember flowers must always be in their boxes at all times.
Hate to say this, but the cardigan would looked much better if the flowers weren't boxed in. Then again, ugliness is kind of the point.

2. On Easter, periwinkle always makes a bold fashion statement.

And this has bunnies at the crease as well as chicks with feathers on them. And some that don't.

3. Nothing makes a better Easter motif than a bunny carrying an Easter egg.

For some reason, that bunny looks a little sad as if Easter is a day of dread. Still, I think the egg is pretty.

4. Nothing is cuter on Easter than a sweater vest of bunnies in boxes.

And it's black so the bunnies stand out. The boxes also contain carrots and eggs for added tackiness.

5. Nothing makes a better Easter sweater than a cardigan of different colored bunnies.

Each row of bunnies is of a different color. But not all are facing the same way. Also, not sure about the light green sleeves.

6. Those who might think ugly Easter sweaters are too girly, might be fine with this bunny one.

This one is black with blue trim and a row of bunnies. Then again, Easter has never really been a manly holiday to celebrate anyway.

7. Those who love lambs and daffodils, have I got an Easter sweater for you.

This one is in the same style as some ugly Christmas sweaters you see. But this one has a more spring theme.

8. On any Easter sweater, you can’t have enough eggs, flowers, or bunnies.

This light blue one uses some degree of sequins to stand out. Also has short sleeves which is odd for a sweater. Then again, Easter takes place in spring.

9. You can always tell it’s an Easter sweater if it has bunnies on it.

Not sure of what to think about this sweater. The bunnies don't seem to look happy. But it's certainly tacky that I'll give it a space on this post.

10. Looks like these rabbits love to munch on the garden veggies in this patch.

Sure this might make a great scene for an Easter sweater. However, it's something you really don't want to see in real life. Trust me.

11. Of course, in mild weather you can always go with an Easter vest like this.

This one consists of a bunny in basket, Easter eggs, flowers, and other things. Nevertheless, it's incredibly tacky.

12. Sure it may seem like an ugly sweater, but check for chickens and bunnies to see if it’s for Easter.

This one has 2 rows of chickens and one row of bunnies. And the bunnies are all facing with their cotton tails.

This one has geese in the top right corner. Yet, it's trimmed with blue gingham and pink roses.

14. To make the bunnies and eggs stand out, go with navy blue.

Yes, I know a lot of these contain Easter eggs and bunnies. But that's what you'd have to expect sometimes.

15. On an Easter sweater like this, each item belongs in their respective columns.

This one has 2 columns with chicks and eggs as well as 2 with bunnies and carrots. But somehow this sweater is cute and tacky at the same time.

16. If you love funky colored animals, this is the Easter sweater for you.

I guess the chicks are silver, the bunnies are purple, the pigs are yellow, and the lambs are pink. Still, not sure if it's the kind of ugly Easter sweater I'd wear.

17. Seems like this rabbit is taking a walk with his dog on a lit street.

Of course, normally dogs are bigger than rabbits and tend to eat them. And believe me, I've seen this happen.

18. Sometimes on Easter, you have to stand out with some bright colors.

Yes, I know that a lot of Easter stuff tends to have pastel colors on them. This sweater tends to be an exception as you see. But still kind of an eyesore.

19. For a fuzzy cotton tail, may I suggest white feathers?

Not sure if feathers is appropriate for a bunny's cotton tail. But it sure makes this sweater look rather horrific.

20. For a simple design, why not go for a bunny with bows?

Sure those may not look like bows. But I'm sure this sweater is bound to be Easter appropriate in its own way.

From all the sweaters I've put on this post so far, this first one that doesn't have a single animal in sight. Just baskets, eggs, and flowers.

32. In some respects, it seems like some bunnies like to go gardening.

Well, we know that rabbits do like gardens, particularly with veggies. That's why they're considered pests by many.

Kind of reminds me of a sweater straight off of Dr. Seuss. Wonder why that is.

34. Of course, Easter wouldn’t be Easter without the Easter Bunny.

Well, at least in the US and Germany anyway. Other countries may or may not have one.

39. Some of these bunnies are hiding in their little holes.

Probably because they're trying desperately not to get caught by pest control. Because they tend to ruin gardens during the spring and summer.

43. Looks like this bunny has found itself in the carrot patch.

And if it was smart, it would get it's ass out of there before the gardener shows up. Or pest control. Whichever comes first.

By using shoddy colors and ignoring the fact that pears don't come out in the spring. Seriously, they get ripe at the same time most fruits do.
