Ugly Christmas Sweater: A History


Ugly Christmas Sweater. Jingle Bell Sweater. Christmas Jumper...Whatever you decide to call it and whether you get yours from your local thrift store or even knit your own, there is a brief history to this less-than-sartorial garment. History shows that the "ugly sweater" trend has been around since the 19th century. In the 1950's us humans decided to add Christmas on to the ugly, thus, the Ugly Christmas Sweater was born (although it was probably really trendy and cool at the time...).




Along came the 80's. Not only did we see a resurgence of crazy hair (see below), but also...Yep, you guessed it: The Ugly Christmas Sweater. 


Louis XIV of France  vs. Slash of Guns N' Roses

The trend quelled throughout the 90's but in 2002, Vancouver, Canada, laid claim to the first Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. What started out as a a small group of friends who thought it would be funny to require friends to wear an ugly sweater to their Christmas party eventually graduated into an annual event that hosts thousands of people in their Ugly Christmas Sweaters. 

To celebrate Ugly Christmas Sweater Day, December 15th, we are hosting our monthly Sip N' Shop and the theme is...
UGLY CHRISTMAS SWEATER!

So throw on your ugliest sweater and come join us on December 15th from 5-8PM in our shop for yarn, wine, bingo and last minute Christmas shopping :)
