Make Sure Everybody Comes To Play
While this is not individual sweater advice, it is nonetheless crucial: EVERYONE AT AN UGLY SWEATER PARTY NEEDS TO BE THEME-APPROPRIATE. I was at a supposed ugly sweater party last week, that I was hoping to photograph for inclusion in this post. Unfortunately, the absolute brilliance of my own ugly sweater (we'll get to that later) was rendered completely meaningless by the general lack of participation in the theme. I felt like I might as well have just dressed up like an asshole to go grocery shopping or something. So you see, people who can't spare 30 lousy minutes to go sweater-diving at the local Goodwill, you're not just hurting yourself. You're hurting everyone.
