It doesn’t matter if Christmas sweaters are still ironic or not – bottom line: Christmas sweaters are one of the best things about the holiday season. Ugly Christmas sweaters are awesome! They remind you of taking cheesy photos as a kid with your siblings and fake snow to put on the family Christmas card. Some of them are so ugly they’re kind of trendy, but for those of us who love Christmas sweaters and have a wicked sense of humor, these sweaters are so on point.
The traditional ugly Christmas sweater is super sincere: overflowing with holiday cheer, occasionally lighting up, definitely festooned with pompoms and the like. The below Christmas sweaters are nothing like that. With pop-culture savvy references and hilarious one-liners, these sweaters are made for the sassiest girls who know how to wear a statement piece. Just like candy canes and egg nog, holiday related jokes have their peak season and this is definitely it. The time is now, so get ordering and get these hilarious, sassy sweaters delivered on time for that holiday party and make all your friends crack up laughing.
