In the 80s and 90s the ugly Christmas sweater was something only your cooky older realtives wore. You could expect it to make its appearance on Grandma, her still living at home adult son Uncle Hank and of course Great Aunt Ester. Then in the early 2000s, with the mockery and irony of the youth culture, came the ironic wearing of the ugly Christmas sweater. It was so uncool it was cool or funny or something. As we all know, anytime a trend is cool and funny and or something, of course it will be made into a party theme. Henceforth, the Ugly Christmas Sweather parties and themed bar nights began. Fastforward almost 20 years, have ugly Christmas sweaters just become part of the holiday? Are we still ironically wearing them? Is it a trend? or have they somehow become cute???
