Back in 2011, a group of college friends, searched various thrift stores, to find the most 'ugliest' christmas sweaters that they could find. The more garish and ridiculous the better. They devoted an entire day, on the third friday of every month, to wearing them at 'ugly sweater parties.
What started out as a fun thing to do, was the springboard for the National Ugly Christmas sweater day, four years on, and it is now rising in popularity. The event has now also joined forces with one of the leading Children's charities, Save The Children and proceeds from sales of sweaters help children in need Today, is National Ugly Sweater day and to celebrate this,here are 21 pictures of the ugliest sweaters out there!
