What has bright clashing colors and more ornaments than a Christmas tree? It’s the ugly Christmas sweater, the staple of the Christmas season. Any artful conception is allowed for this sweater and in fact the bigger and brighter it is, the better. These sweaters can be lit up with Christmas tree lights, decorated with tinsel and ornaments — no article of frowzy festivity should be left out. The options are endless and it is the perfect place to let your inner child out, to get creative and messy and to show off your holiday spirit.
