12 Days of Ugly Christmas Sweaters [infographic]

I have been listening to Christmas music for months and shopping for Christmas gifts and planning winter outfits. If you’re into the holidays at all, you must know that an ugly christmas sweater is a must-have.

Occasionally referred to as ‘tacky’ Christmas sweaters, they are a staple item for themed holiday parties. The best part about them is that it doesn’t matter if you buy a cheap one from the store, or get your crafty on to make a cotton ball snowman on an old sweater. Whether I’m invited to any sweater parties this year or not, I will definitely be sporting the green sweatshirt I just got. The front reads, “Merry Christmas Ya Filthy Animal,” and I am dying to show it off.

If you’re in the market for ugly Christmas sweater ideas, check out the infographic below. After you’ve chosen or made your sweater, remember to wear them loud and proud! Celebrate Christmas in style (or not in style if that’s what you’re going for).

A Day To Remember

Veterans-DayIn the United States, it’s called Veterans Day. In Canada remembered as Remembrance Day. Whatever name you give it, let us remember those who paid the ultimate price for us.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place; and in the sky

The larks, still bravely singing, fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved, and now we lie

In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:

To you from failing hands we throw

The torch; be yours to hold it high.

If ye break faith with us who die

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields.
