During the holidays there is little time for anything other than Christmas shopping and celebrations with your friends and family. These days, ugly Christmas sweater parties are aplenty, but that wasn't always the case. By some stroke of genius, someone (we aren't sure who) made it cool to go to a thrift store or dig up their old Christmas gifts from grandma and transform them into the inspiration of many Christmas parties. Since then, ugly holiday sweaters have become a hot commodity and many people are left wondering where to buy ugly Christmas sweaters for their event. The thrift stores are sold out, grandma's stock has run out, and you want something that suits you. Well, we're here to help with ugly Christmas sweater ideas for every holiday partygoer.

So, you're a funny one, eh? Perhaps you are looking to crack a joke about Santa (pun 100% intended) or want to proclaim your love for bacon and beer. No matter what your goal is, you obviously have a sense of humor, so your ugly Christmas sweater should reflect that. If you wear the Happy Holla Days sweater for Christmas, does that make you a rapper or a wrapper? There are just so many questions that come to mind when looking at these sweaters that they are bound to bring laughs and plenty of interesting conversations.

The Movie Buff
There are some Christmas movies out there that are so good you have to make a point to watch them every year, but where do you even begin? Set a day aside to watch some movies, snuggle on the couch, and eat some Christmas popcorn. (Mmm, chocolate!) If you don't have that kind of time this year, you can show your love of movies at the ugly sweater party instead with these geeky Christmas sweaters. Now the question is, how do you choose your favorite? When all else fails, it would be fun to say, "Merry Christmas, ya filthy animal" to everyone you see!

For the ugly Christmas sweater parties that include the kids (pets, too!), you'll need to make sure that they also have something equally ugly to celebrate the occasion. Finding a holiday sweater for your child at the thrift store is seemingly impossible. Apparently, small children didn't hop on the sweater bandwagon quite like the adults did in past decades. Luckily, we have a few options that aren't so hideous that your strong-willed child will refuse to wear it and still follows in the spirit of ugly sweaters.
