Christmas sweater?

    I own three "ugly" Christmas sweaters. Every year, my friends and I have an Ugly Christmas Sweater party. it's always a fantastic time. We usually have delicious snacks and then put some meat on the raclette and dip cheese in the fondue. Just thinking about it makes me wish it were tomorrow!

    On top of this, I started a new tradition last year. I divide everyone into teams (of three or four) and organize a music trivia game. I love it. I am kind of a savant when it comes to music, plus they all know that I am the one that loves Christmas the most, so I enjoy taking the reigns here. In terms of the game, I create six categories. Two of them being Traditional Christmas music (pre-1970) and Modern Christmas music (post-1970). Other categories range from One Hit Wonders of the late 90s, Boy Bands, or Alternative Rock. Much like the party as a whole, I am super excited to try this again in a few months. Actually, I already have the game about 70% completed.

    Hopefully I will get around to posting my sweaters later. Kim and I just purchased new ones last year. We may re-use them this year, but we'll probably still look around for new ones... After all, there are also awards for Best Sweater and Most Tacky Sweater!

    I've got a 'Mr Christmas' (from the 'MR MEN' series of children's books) and a 'Jingle For Me' t-shirts. And for sweaters (or jumpers as we call them here in the UK!) one that's a 'santa' outfit (complete with knitted belt) and one that's a black sweater with an elf's body on it (so it's my head on a little body!!!).

    I's great fun wearing the t-shirts in the middle of summer and seeing what reactions you get :)

    As someone who rocked the Christmas sweater thing long before anyone called them "ugly," I love that fireplace!

    I would love to own a Christmas Sweater, but being Summer here at Christmas time, it is way to hot and I'll probably melt and even our winter does not get cold enough to wear a sweater either, that's the Tropics for you..maybe one day...lol

    I don't own any but do have some T-shirts. Would rather not see them called ugly but I don't take offense.

    We typically don't dress up for Christmas anymore but we don't go anywhere either. If I could stay in pajamas and a robe all day, I would be just fine!

    Hi Holly Jolly, nice to meet you!
    I was just shopping around online today for Christmas pajamas.
    That's my new thing now is instead of getting all dressed up on Christmas day like I did when I was younger I just lounge around in Christmas PJs brings out the little kid in me LOL:)

    Thank you!
    I think I'd be embarrassed to attend, though … I'd have to keep my robe on!

    Hi MsRose!

    For a couple of decades, until last year, we would do Christmas on Christmas Eve at very close family friends near my parent's house, then go back to my folks' place and do it there. I'd say around 25 of us at any moment. I always went over in pajama bottoms, a robe, and slippers...probably in a Christmas T shirt though. Stayed in them. Some others do similar, some rock Christmas sweaters or costumes. Next day, shower...then new ones! Nowadays, we seal off at the folks' house for days. Each day, same. I even exercise the dog in them. Street clothes don't come back until we leave the house. Bliss.

    MerryCarey - no need for embarrassment...you're among family & friends! ::surprise

    And yet, I got a fire-engine-red onesie with matching booties when I was 15---and posed for a photograph! I just don't think I could pull it off today!

    I have found some "ugly" sweaters I would love to add to my collection.
    What do you get a Status Quo fan?

    One of my favorite movies, Gremlins, I think I need this one.
