UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER 2016

50 IS NOT OLD | UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER 2016Christmas sweaters have now become a “thing” but not in a good way. It has become cool to wear the ugliest Christmas sweater you can, but I like the sweaters of old. They were just a way to express your love of Christmas in a fashion statement. Okay, maybe that statement was not the most stylish, but it was still fashion. National Ugly Christmas Sweater Day has grown to be an international event. Now occurring on the thirdย Friday of December, the celebration gives holiday lovers worldwide a chance to wear their ugly Christmas sweaters.50 IS NOT OLD | UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER 2016A lot of people who participate in the Ugly Christmas Sweater Day will make their sweaters. They take an old sweater and embellish it to the point of excess. Some just find the silliest Christmas sweater they can find and wear that. I am just wearing some that I have been guilty of wearing in the past and loving how they looked. This sweatshirt is one that “I” painted of the manager scene. I have no idea how old this shirt is, probably at least 15-20 years old. Lol!50 IS NOT OLD | UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER 2016How about channeling Mrs. Claus? I found this sweater at Walmart and I thought it was cute in the ugliest way! Hahaha I have seen others post a sweater similar to this one but they had the long sleeve version. I wore a long sleeve white top under the sweater to keep me warm. It was a high of 23 today. Brrrrrr!

And now for the “Christmas Sweaters” from my readers. Notice that I didn’t say “ugly,” I don’t think ANY of them are ugly. I love this post and I am so glad that these ladies decided to join me today.ย img_4223 ugly-sweater-contest dsc02336 img_4069 20161212_180424_hdr-1 20161213_185445 image1 img_1629 132-3255_img img_4182-edited-3fullsizerender50 IS NOT OLD | UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER 2016This has been fun!

      I really don’t ever consider Christmas apparel ugly, I just LOVE Christmas. But since it was the day of Ugly Sweaters, I thought we could play along.

    My mom made me one that was beautiful. It was a Christmas tree and had a lighting pack so the tree would light up. I don’t think they’re ugly. Everyone is too worried about looking elegant all the time. Have some fun people! Christmas is better with bling!

    Oh thanks for doing this post, Tania! SO FUN! And it makes “sister-hood”! I love the one you painted! (I’d LOVE to see more of your paintings!) And I really like the first one w/the poinsettias on it! Have a super fun, highly blessed 9th day before Christmas!

    So much fun! I’m wearing a “lovely” puff painted sweatshirt from the early 90s today. I believe the scene on it is from Mary Englebright. For the record, my husband used to order these for our family, not me. I’m more preppy and would’ve picked out shirts from LL Bean and had them monogrammed. Chip is such a girl sometimes…a 6’7″ girl. ROFL But I love him all the more for ordering these for our family all those years ago.

    And, I’m done! My daughter, Sydney, and I, went 15 school days wearing Christmas themed outfits, with no repeats!

      I can’t believe I couldn’t get those pictures uploaded. I am such a computer novice. WOW! 6’7″, that is crazy. I thought my son was tall at 6’4″!!!
