How did this whole ugly Christmas sweater trend get started? It all began in the eighties—a decade when many fashion disasters were born. It was a time of neon colors, parachute pants, cutesy Fair Isle sweaters, and far too much hair spray.


Against this backdrop of hideous apparel, festive holiday sweaters in garish hues with excessive embellishment hardly raised an eyebrow. There were some TV show and movie characters who wore tacky sweaters that were a bit over the top. But it took a couple of decades before the ugly Christmas sweater concept faded to an object of nostalgia, primed for reincarnation as a tongue-in-cheek trend.


In the early 2000s, a couple of Canadian blokes revived the ugly Christmas sweater as a fashion statement in its own right. They even organized an entire party around the concept. The initial intent was to simply gather with a few friends and enjoy some eggnog and relaxed merrymaking.


Yet today, this event has swollen to oversized proportions, with more than 1000 attendees gathering annually in the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. While Canada may have gotten its mittens on the idea first, the ugly Christmas sweater party soon caught on from the U.S. to the U.K.


So, Join the festivities with your own Ugly Sweater, not all are truly ugly, some are quite fun!
