Everyone thinks the holidays are about giving presents, getting presents, and, in some cases, a morbidly obese man in a bright red suit. But they're wrong. Here's what no one tells you: the holidays are all about the ugly sweaters.
Whether it's good old fashioned ugly or a more modern rendition of the trend, everyone owns one and we all secretly can't wait to bust it out when the weather cools down. Wearing these things is practically a winter sport. Everyone wants theirs to be the ugliest, or the most clever, or the most offensive. If you're crowned the winner of an ugly sweater contest at a holiday party, those bragging rights will follow you to your grave. Seriously.
