Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree at the Ugly Sweater Party (Third Edition)

snapshot_20161214_9

As we all know, I couldn’t do some Christmas posts without including another edition for ugly holiday sweaters. Unlike some of the other ones, I deliberately delayed this one since inserting a photo of myself in a sweater at this point required my house to be decorated for the Christmas season. And since I did most of the later edition ones just after Thanksgiving, I had to move it at a later date. Now that we’re in the middle of December, so it’s all fine and dandy. Anyway, though the sweater I wear above isn’t necessarily ugly or Christmas specific, it’s in a similar style that you’d associate with ugly Christmas sweaters this time of year. And yes, they’ve exploded in popularity over the years due to their sheer tackiness. So much so that I’ve found ugly Christmas sweaters for many of my themed posts this year as well. Hell, there are holiday sweaters pertaining to stuff I couldn’t even think of. Nevertheless, since I’m aware of the ugly Christmas sweater’s significance, I know that another post isn’t optional in this case. So for your reading pleasure, I give you yet another assortment of more ugly holiday sweaters for the season.

  1. Fans of A Christmas Story will be tickled pink with this Christmas sweater.
This one contains the leg lamp and Ralphie in the infamous pink bunny outfit. And the lampshades are pink.

2. Of course, someone has to be the fruitcake this Christmas.

For the record, to be known as a fruitcake isn't a compliment. Those called this are either known to be so disliked they're passed around, have to be enjoyed with tons of alcohol, or gay. Okay, my apologies to the LGBT community on the last one.

3. Tis the season for rutting reindeer apparently.

To be fair, this is great way to show people why we have certain times a year when we shoot them. Best to wear in front of those with relatives in Mt. Lebanon.

11. On Christmas we’re going to party like it’s Jesus’s birthday.

Though we're not really sure if it is. But setting it on December 25 has more to do with the Jewish idea that prophets died on the day they were conceived.

12. Show off your leg lamp at your Christmas window this holiday season.

32. At the Griswolds’, it’s always a fun, old-fashioned family Christmas.

And it's probably one that you'd rather skip out on. Mostly because the Clark Griswold isn't the brightest bulb in the patch. And might even be a bit nuts.
