12 ugly Christmas sweaters that will make you the life of the party

It's not Christmas without hideous sweaters.

What’s holiday cheer without a little bit of utter embarrassment? The answer is: not very cheery! That’s why you need to plan an ugly sweater party. "What's an ugly sweater party?" you ask. Pretty much an excuse to inhale an obscene amount of holiday cooking and spiked egg nog while forcing all your friends to compete for the title of “ugliest.” What could be more fun?

Don’t be mistaken. The success of an ugly sweater party depends on just how shameless you’re willing to be. In this case, having no shame will be a positive. The uglier your sweater, the more successful you will be in the eyes of your opponents. Do not tread lightly!

Here are 12 ugly sweaters that will make everyone at your party just slightly more uncomfortable. Get ready to take pictures!

And know one will know you secretly like it, because you’re supposed to be wearing something so atrocious!

This sweater is ugly (or should we say bigley?). No matter what your politics are, you can twist the message here to fit your viewpoint.
