When I think of Christmas sweaters I usually think of that that weird uncle (or old guy at work or the lovable but dopey neighbor) who wears the light up Christmas Tree sweater that plays "Deck The Halls" every time someone shakes his hand and trips the little buzzer he's holding.
Not all Christmas sweaters require batteries, but many still belong at ugly sweater parties rather than actual holiday parties. I was surprised to find so many Christmas sweaters while wandering stores recently. Urban Outfitters has adorned a sweater with ornaments (above, $49) and several shops including Victoria's Secret have reindeer prancing across their sweaters (below). What do you think of the Christmas sweater? Do you love the over-the-top fun for the holiday season? Or do you loathe all Christmas prints? Are subtle prints like snowflakes OK? Or should everyone just stick to a nice red sweater?
