It’s hard to say who invented the first ugly Christmas sweater. As a matter of fact, we can presume that ugly sweaters were designed with the original intention of being fashionable. It’s only because of ever-changing fashion trends that sweaters once deemed acceptable are now considered ugly. As a clothing item, ugly sweaters were often featured on situation comedies in the 1980s. They were mostly cardigans, buttoned down the front. The Christmas theme entered around the same time, with the first mass-produced Christmas garments being made under the name of “jingle bell sweaters” during the ’80s as well.

Times have changed…or stayed the same The “UGLY SWEATER PARTY” is still alive and well. In fact, I received my annual invite to one but I have to pass, you see due to other obligations… and the fact that I lent my UGLY sweater to someone already!!! By the way my ugly sweater has so many poinsettias on it we call it the “placenta” sweater..family joke (sorry)!!! HaHaHa

I also received another invite for an Ice Princess Theme Party, with Giggle Juice. This group is the ultimate Theme Party Collective. Glad to be on the invite list even if I can’t attend!

LIVE LIFE WITH STYLE & FLAIR…WITH PANACHE THIS HOLIDAY!!!
